Jernej Kruder: Exchanged his hockey equipment for rocks

A citizen of Celje has been climbing since the age of six and competing in the world cup for ten years, but his first sport was hockey. As a child, he was full of energy. As he recalls, he could not stand still for long. Due to his physical predisposition, he chose...



“The only thing I am good at is climbing, and I want to do it 100-percent. ”

Jernej Kruder, the 27-year-old from Celje, met Sports Climbing for the first time in elementary scholl. He fell in love with this sports right away. After getting acquainter with artificial walls in Celje, he quickly switched to boulder and became a World vice-champion in 2014. In the same year, he was recognized as the most successful sport climber in Slovenia by the Olympic Committee of Slovenia.

His sisters Neza and Julija followed his footsteps. The Kruder family has three climbers and they say that you are cool, if you climb. And because The Rock at the Congress Square in the middle of Ljubljana, is also cool, you should come and join us in meeting this new, Olympic sport, where Jernej Kruder will be the ambassador of the event.

A climber from Celje proved his qualities on Majorca, where he climbed a boulder Es Pontas with the difficulty level of 9b, without the protection and only a few meter above sea. Until this date, this is still the most difficult Sports Climb in our country. It took him two weeks and 39 attempts, but he became the second climber in the history to do it. In his words, bouledring is the purest form of climbing.

He also managed to climb the Triple Bridge (Tromostovje) in the center of Ljubljana, which is one of the symbols of Jože Plecnik’s architectural creation in our country.

He will also face The Rock at the Congress Square in Ljubljana.


The idea to construct a climbing wall that will host top climbers from all around the world has arisen through a group of individuals and experts involved in organizing top level sports climbing events for many years now. The design of the wall configuration has also taken into account the expert opinion of the two Slovenian sports climbing selectors.

The modular climbing wall is easy to erect in one single afternoon; while the entire construction together with the safety mats is transported from one place to another within the shortest possible time period. The object is designed and constructed exclusively for big international events. Coated with a special mixture to ensure good gripping conditions for climbing shoes, and furnished with wooden formations, plastic volumes and holds of versatile shapes, it is going to pose a major challenge to all the participating athletes, particularly those competing in the semi-finals and then onto the finals.
