Clara Kulich, 27, is from Lower Austria. She is a researcher of organisational psychology and pursues her PhD on women and leadership at the University of Exeter (UK). At sports grammar school she was already enthusiastic about languages, travelling and winter sports. Her studies abroad in Geneva in 2002 sparked her love for mountaineering. Since then Clara travels mostly to alpine areas. Also, she has become an instructor for mountaineering and does guiding for the alpine club. Three years in England turned her into a passionate "trad-climber" at English sea-cliffs and in Scotland. In 2004 she had her first high-altitude mountaineering experience. In 2007 she organised a trip to Cho-Oyu (8201m) and successfully summited on May 14. Here motto: "My way to hibernate summer is to go to the mountains."
