Angelika Rainer – Ice climber

Angelika Rainer


Born and raised in South Tyrol, Italy, climbing was always going to be an obvious pursuit for Angelika. Even from a young age she had a real passion for the outdoors and as a child she regularly hiked with her mother in the mountains of South Tyrol.

Ever since her first alpine fixed-rope route she was hooked, from there she took part in regional, national and international competitions and, after winning the Junior Italian Championships in Sport climbing several times she became three times Ice Climbing World Champion and two times Ice Climbing World Cup winner.

Favourite kit:

My Ramche down jacket. Without this I couldn’t go out in winter and try to climb hard routes. I really need to stay warm to be able to perform well.

Fun facts:

Angelika’s favourite thing to eat while out on her adventures is a homemade sandwich with ham or speck, which is a local South Tyrollean smoked pork meat.
