Klemen Gričar. Slovenian IFMGA Mountain Guide based in the Julian Alps.
We first met Klemen when he assisted on our Ski touring trip to the Julian Alps in March 2006 and it was clear from the outset that we'd met a very special talent!
I was born in Jesenice on 25.03.1967.
I'm based in Gozd Martuljek in the Julian Alps, Slovenia.
I qualified as an IFMGA Mountain Guide in 2003 and I was President of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association from 2009-2013.
I've loved the mountains for as long as I can remember. It started in primary school when I was in the local mountaineering club. In high school I started climbing. Later I joined the mountain rescue team in Kranjska Gora and I have been a member of the rescue team since 1994.
I've been guiding for the past 11 years in the Alps and all around the world. Each year I usually guide for about 150 days.
Alongside my work, my family (wife, 2 children), travel and mountain photography are my passions.
