Successes in competitive sports

Having already been runner-up at the 2001 World Climbing Championships, he went on to win the difficulty climbing title in 2003 and 2005. In 2004, he won the overall World Cup. In 2006 he finished second. In 2001 he won his first World Cup in Aprica (Italy) and won the Rock Master in Arco. Until 2006 he could win eight more World Cups.

Difficult paths in natural rock

In May 2002 he managed his first 9a according to the French scale with Underground in Massone (Arco). He followed this with Sanjski par extension and Martin Krpan in Osp, Slovenia, two more routes of this difficulty. In August 2005 he succeeded in Petra Negra, possibly the first onsight ascent of a route in grade 8c (UIAA 10+/11-)[1]. His most difficult first ascent to date is the 45-metre-long Xaxid hostel route at grade 9a+. He succeeded in 2009, also in Osp.
