Salfarina’s interest in climbing started during her school days. She was already doing a lot of trekking and mountaineering when a friend introduced her to wall climbing. In the year 2000, she placed 3rd in a competition’s novice category and this fueled her decision to advance her skill.
No stranger to the IFCS Climbing World Cup and the Asian X-Games, she has always embraced competition. To her, competing is a chance to prove not just to others, but to herself, that with the right mindset and hard work, you can achieve what you set out to do. With each competition, she pushed her limits and continuously raised the bar for herself.
For Salfarina, rock climbing is as much as a mental challenge as it is physical. It quickly grew from a sport into a lifestyle for the acclaimed rock climber. Though she has officially retired from the International scene, she continues to train and advance her skills.
