About Zofia


Anthropologist, writer, founder of the Women's Bouldering Festival

I am a climber and anthropologist who has been working in the outdoor industry since 2015. Before that, I studied Anthropology of Media at SOAS, University of London, and Japanese Studies at Warsaw University in Poland.

I fell in love with the Tatra Mountains when I was three years old, and I started climbing when I was sixteen. After a decade-long hiatus, I am now almost exclusively a boulderer. 


My work has included online marketing, ghostwriting and journalism, with articles published in national and specialist press in the UK, Poland and Germany. I also worked for EpicTV Climbing in Chamonix.


After having lived in five different countries, I am currently based in the French bouldering mecca of Fontainebleau, where I am the founder and director of the Women’s Bouldering Festival, the biggest event of its kind in Europe.


Five years ago I was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. My partner is photographer Andy Day and together we take care of three rescue animals: Stefan, Katini and Lulu.

Born to Climb is my first book
