Nina sees climbing as a way of finding truth, facing herself with each move - the good, the bad and the ugly. Growing up on a farm in Switzerland, Nina feels most at home outside, having the sky as her roof and the earth as her bed. As a self-professed 'bon vivant hippy' she seeks an emotional calling to each project, but don’t for one second think that she is flighty. Nina can be as sharp as a Swiss knife (which is one of her nicknames), efficiently climbing, training hard and expressing herself completely through her spot. She knows what a privilege it is to live a climbing gypsy life, feeling gratitude even on the days she doesn’t send.
