Would you like to improve your climbing technique? Have you been stuck at the same level for too long? Do you want to be coached on a specific climbing technique at which you are not as good as you would like to be? If you would like to improve any of the above then this is the trip for you!
I propose you to join me on an intensive 6-hour advanced rock climbing technique coaching in different locations of Slovenia, like Kotečnik, Osp, Mišja Peč, Buzetski Kanjon and Kompanj, and also to Istria, in Croatia.
Depending on your wishes, climbing level and location I will choose the best crag for your coaching program. The trip can also be customized to other climbing crags, I just listed the best options in the area.
I can take a maximum of 3 people on this training, this allows a more personalized approach to each climber. We will be focused on outdoor or indoor climbing techniques, depending on your wishes. We will also have a technological approach, including the use of smart headphones and video analysis.
I will take you to great climbing venues in the Julian Alps, Eastern Slovenia and in the Primorska region. The beautiful peninsula of Istria, surrounded by the Adriatic sea, offers amazing climbing spots in Croatia.
We will have an intensive climbing session focused on climbing technique and skills. Bear in mind that in order to join this program you should have the skills to lead climb without any problems.

How long will tha climbing take?
I have been climbing for 13 years and I literally love the rock, as I am a geologist.
I am 26 years old, experienced to guide you to sport climbing crags. I have been working as aclimbing coach for 7 years and I am also a part in the Committee of sport climbing (Alpine association Slovenia) for licensing sport climbers in Slovenia. I also work as a route setter in different sports centres.
Besides giving you the tips and knowledge, you will also teach you how to improve your climbing technique and share my experience in sports climbing, I will also add value to the climbing tour by sharing my knowledge of geology. I always know what type of rock I hold on to and how it formed. On certain climbing spots, I am also able to explain how they were formed and why they are there in the first place.
I live in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, but I really enjoy spending time outdoors, so please contact me and we will get in touch! I will find the climbing crag most suitable for you, depending on your climbing experience.
So, if you are up for some positive energy adventure, contact me!

Lan is a great guide, very patient and skillful. The area he took us to was beautiful and great for climbing. As we are from NL we did not have much experience with outdoor climbing but Lan taught us really well. Highly recommend!
Lan is an excellent teacher and guide for outdoor climbing. We had a two days program combining outdoor climbing skills and guided outdoor climbing with him, and it was fantastic. We don’t have any experience climbing outdoors. After two days with him, we are confident that we have the skills to climb outside at our level by ourselves. First, Lan is extremely familiar with the climbing spots in Slovenia since he has been climbing here for more than 10 years. He can find the best spots that match our level for us to enjoy. In two days, we got the chance to climb at different parts in Slovenia with very different views and rocks. One in the west with very nice sea view at the top, and one in the mountains that we need to hike a bit to reach it: everyday we get something new to experience. Second, Lan is very skilled and experienced in outdoor climbing. He estimated our skills when we started with simple routes. After that, he will recommend some routes that are good for us to practice new skills and some other routes that push us a bit to our limit. Because he is very experienced, he could always guide us through the harder routes when we stuck. These guidances are very helpful for us to make progress in climbing. At the same time, he puts the safety in the first place and always keeps an eye on us to catch anything that we didn’t do properly and lets us know. I felt very safe and well taken care of when climbing with him. Furthermore, Lan is good at breaking down the skill teaching part during the climbing process. As such, we never felt bored of practicing because new skill is always combined with a climbing route that we will immediately try it out. Thirdly, Lan is a very nice person and passionate about climbing. I could not imaging how can I climb up those hard cracks without his encouragement and hints. He has vast knowledge about climbing and Slovenia that he is eager to share with us. In these two days, I know much more in these topics than before. We really had a lot of fun climbing with him. As such, I highly recommend anyone interested in learning outdoor climbing contact him and book a trip with him. You will enjoy the experience as we do! If you want a guided outdoor climbing trip please also contact him, and he won’t let you down!
