Zofia Reych is the founder of the Women’s Bouldering Festival in Fontainebleau and author of Born to Climb: From Rock Climbing Pioneers to Olympic Athletes. Climbing is a driving force in their life—but for a long time, it also seemed to be a destructive one. After receiving diagnoses for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and being forced to limit climbing during the pandemic lockdowns, Zof discovered that perhaps the best way for them to improve their climbing was to temporarily let it go.
