Issy, enthusiastic rock climber from UK:

“From the start to the end, my climbing completely changed.”

I did intensive climbing coaching with Klemen over 3 weeks. It was all outside, at different crags in Croatia and Slovenia. We went on loads of different rock types. The whole experience was a great adventure. From the start to the end, my climbing completely changed. I’m onsighting routes I previously would have struggled to redpoint. I am more confident on the range of moves you encounter on different formations of rock. And it was just loads of fun. He’s really good at spotting what you can improve and helping to make it happen, all with a smile and lots of encouragement. I highly recommend him as a coach, wether you want a climbing experience or you want to really improve your technique, he’s a great coach.

Zan Ray from USA:

“I have a ton of new knowledge I will take back with me.”

Climbing with Klemen was a marvelous experience. While visiting Slovenia, my plans in the Alps changed last minute. I came down to the coast and hoped to do some climbing there. When I contacted Klemen to see if he could meet me in the next couple of days, he said yes, that he could show me to the crags for the time I was in the area. This was great! Klemen was prompt and very professional. I’m still a beginner and Klemen knew just the right ways to push me while still being patient and encouraging. I know my climbing has improved markedly with the techniques Klemen showed me. I have a ton of new knowledge I will take back with me to the States as well as the memory of climbing at some stunningly beautiful crags. I whole-heartedly recommend Klemen at “Climb Istria”. This was an experience I will never forget!
