What are your climbing goals?
When I started climbing I was more into sport climbing (mainly indoor bouldering) and my main goal was to do good at local competitions. As I got older I discovered my love of nature and got more into lead climbing outside (I don’t even like indoor bouldering that much anymore), which lead to discovering alpine climbing and multipitches. Today I aim to be the best climber I can be and I want to do a lot of cool multipitches and possibly climb some big mountains, but my main goal is to have fun, build strong bonds with my friends and enjoy climbing as much as I can.
Most memorable climbing experience?
Climbing has been a huge part of my life for such a long time now that it’s practically impossible for me to choose my most memorable experience, but if I had to choose something I guess it would be climbing my longest big wall so far, last year in Paklenica. It was a 350m long route named “Klin”. It’s graded 6c+ and has 12 pitches. It was my first time climbing something so long. My climbing partner and I needed abut 7 hours to get to the top. There were moments when we were scared to death and we thought that we wouldn’t be able to do it, but in the end everything worked out fine and when we got to the top I experienced a feeling of great happiness and successful teamwork, which I never felt before in my climbing career.
What do you like most about MyClimb?
I like this great app because it helps me keep track of how much I train per week/month/year, the challenges give me motivation to climb more than I usually would and if I run out of ideas on how to make my training session fun and efficient, I can always follow a workout that this app provides.
What do you enjoy the most about climbing?
Traveling, discovering new places, meeting new people, spending a lot of time in nature…but most of all I enjoy the movement of climbing. When I’m on the wall I’m completely focused on climbing and all my other problems go away. Having a goal in climbing is something that gets me out of bed in the morning and it keeps me motivated in other aspects of life also.
How did you start climbing?
I started climbing in 2007. when I was around 10 years old. My best friend at the time came to me one day and asked me if I wanted to go try out climbing with him. I wasn’t really sure what this “climbing” thing was, but it sounded fun so I accepted the challenge. I fell in love right away and there was no turning back. Nothing has changed since then and my love for climbing is still the same, maybe even bigger.
Favorite climbing discipline?
Definitely lead climbing.
