Evening Summertime with Katherine and Jim


Beautiful and warm summer evening in Jura. Tonight, I have the chance to photoshot Katherine and Jim, two talented climbers. Katherine is a Swiss climber and last year, she has redpointed Jungfrau Marathon at Gimmelwald in Switzerland. That was her second 9a after Cabane au Canada at Rawyl in 2018


This evening, I am very fortunate to accompany Katherine and Jim on an ascent for pleasure, in our common corner of the country, Jura. Katherine was introduced to climbing at at early age and after winning her category of the Junior World Championship in 2009 continued competing successfully. Her best result as a senior was 7th in the Kranj stage of the 2018 Lead World Cup. Having redpointed numerous 8c’s and a handful of 8c+, earlier this year she climbed on the Eiger where she managed to onsight the classic alpine testpiece Deep Blue Sea.
