In climbing, competitions are not everything...

I’ve been climbing for a good decade now. I was drawn into climbing and since I started I put all my other interests aside and just climbed. I’ve made a great progress every year. Good competition results, harder and harder routes that I climbed outdoors gave me the motivation to carry on and train hard.

I train almost everyday with my boyfriend Anže who takes care of my training programme. After every competition season we take holidays... which are always climbing holidays of course!

Bigger success on competitions started in 2005 when I won my first World Cup competition and in 2007 I was the overall World Cup winner. That was my best season so far. Later, I won more World Cups and got on the podium on several European and World championships.

In climbing, competitions are not everything. What I love the most is rock climbing. I enjoy climbing hard routes and the feeling when I switch my brain off and just climb. I don’t have much time for it but I managed to red point an 8c+ and I onsighted one of the coolest lines Humildes pa casa 8b+. When I decide to stop competing I will definitely go rock climbing around the world.
