ES MARTINA CUFAR

 

Martina Cufar Martina CufarBorn in the sign of Capricorn, 14. 1. 1977 under the highest mountain of Slovenia (Triglav 2864m), so maybe climbing is in my genes.

I began climbing when I was 10 years old, in the mountains with my father. Soon I realized sport climbing is more fun and I start to train more and did my first competitions in 1990. I had been competing for 17 years, I was more then 30 times on the podium of international competitions, my best result was becoming a World Champion in 2001, but for me most important was to win Master in Serre Chevalier (2002) and Arco (2001).

But more then competitions I love rock climbing, staying in the nature, discovering new places, new people. So in 2006 I stopped competing and devoted myself totally to rock climbing. Now I enjoy the most in multipitch routes, the wall I like the most is El Capitan in Yosemite which I climbed already 4 times, allways missing a little bit to free it, so this stays my dream.

Martina CufarOtherwise my »results« that I am proud of are: 250 routes harder then 8a, Vizija 8c in Osp, Hotel Supramonte 8b Sardinia (multipitch), Tom et je ris 8b+, Verdon, some 8a+ on sight…

My other passions are skydiving and yoga. Yes, I am a bit hyperactive.

 

To live the life I live, I have to thank to my sponsors: Beal, Five Ten, Petzl, Prana and Slovenian Army, where I am employed as an athlete.
