About Me

I first became interested in alpinism as a 16-year-old boy. My beginnings were far from smooth: fear, clumsiness, indecisiveness, excitement… All these feelings, along with a burning desire to overcome these obstacles, motivated me to challenge myself: can you do this? Do you have what it takes? Are you brave enough?These questions and the actions arising from them eventually brought me atop the highest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest, along with other eight-thousand-meter peaks. I am a proud member of the Mountain Rescue Association of Slovenia, helping people in trouble in the mountains for over 30 years. Without a real love for the mountains, appreciation of true friendship, and a sense of responsibility towards other people, I doubt that I could have achieved all of this. This is the beautiful path that I’ve taken, and I want to share it with you.
