Nejc Marcic (Slovenia)


"I was born in 1985 in Slovenia, and I reside in Bled, a small town at the edge of the Julian Alps. Despite having great mountains practically on my doorstep, I discovered my passion for climbing at the fairly late age of 20. I have outgrown hiking paths and mountain huts 8 years ago and thankfully, found my peace in the vertical world. My alpine climbing career led me from Slovenia, to France, Bolivia, Peru, Patagonia, Yosemite and finally to the Karakorum and Himalaya. My first expedition to the Himalayas happened in 2011 in Pakistan, where we climbed a new route on K7 west.
The feel in my boots has improved dramatically ever since I have been cooperating with Zamberlan and most importantly, my feet have never been wet."
