Swiss born Nicole Berthod is one of the toughest girls we know. Growing up in the Alps, the mountains have always be a great playground for Nicole and her family. She started mountaineering with her family, first by doing some easy trekking with her parents, then by climbing more technical stuff with her brothers and sister. Today, Nicole is not only a UIAGM Mountain guide; she's also writing her master thesis about snow and avalanches.
Nicole climbed the Eiger North Face with her brother and boyfriend, and described it as ”the most intense mountaineering experience until now”. She has also done several ascents in the Chamonix area, which she loves and describes as the "Disneyland of mountaineering".
Her Long term project is to climb technical ascents in women teams, such as the three problems of the Alps, or, what comes on her way.
