Guide

At age 22 Lisi placed second in the Union Internationale des Associations d'Alpinisme World Cup, at 24 she became an International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations mountain guide, and at 29, not long after she finished her master’s degree in Sports Culture, she climbed in the Cirque of the Unclimbables in Nahanni National Park Reserve and was also part of the first ascent of Power of Silence, 5.13. Needless to say, she is a bit of a badass, yet doesn’t climb just anything. Lisi views her first ascents like a work of art - a challenge and adventure with a dash of beauty and good company. Whether these pursuits take her to Oman, Morocco or just to her backyard in the Dolomites, Lisi brings a refined sense of purpose to each climb. When she isn’t working on a new route, she can be found guiding guests around the world from the Alps to Japan, Canada and beyond. She spends the rest of her time training young mountain guides as one of the only female IFMGA examiners in the world.
