AMBASSADOR OF THE EVENT

JERNEJ KRUDER

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

Jernej Kruder, the 29-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.

THE WALL

This year’s situation after the global pandemic prompted us to think about a different angle for the competition. The finals of Triglav The Rock Ljubljana will take place on a wall designed especially for this event, which will hover 5 meters above the surface of the Ljubljanica river. The length of the wall that climbers will have to climb will be 12m, and climbers will only be able to tackle the challenge using their hands. Any mistake will be punished by falling into the river. The winner will be the one who climbs the wall the fastest. This is the first such climbing experience in the world, which will be reminiscent of natural overhangs above the water. The design of the wall configuration has also taken into account the expert opinion of the two Slovenian sports climbing selectors.
