Normally all climbers started on rock or in gyms, but I started to climb in frozen watterfalls. Two of my first climbings were Waterfall "Palenk" and "Skriti slap" (Hidden waterfall) in Logarska dolina (Logarska valley). My partner was Samo Kunej, he was little chubby but good climber.

First experience on the rock I had in Paklenica (Croatia). I was the leader on my very first rock ascent. It was two pitches route graded III+ (UIAA) called "Na okno (On the window).


Thanks to all Climbers to share Mountain Experiences
