Luka Lindič

Luka Lindič is a Slovenian climber and alpinist. The humble young climber has been fascinated by mountains since he was a child. When he started climbing he knew he wanted to go far and go hard. Ambitious from the beginning he trained meticulously and systematically, gaining speed and efficiency on a large number of less demanding routes. This has allowed him to build a solid foundation to take on some of the hardest walls on this planet. His efforts have been fully recognized in 2008 for the first time when he was awarded the title of the “Most Promising Alpine Climber for 2008” by the Mountaineering Association of Slovenia. In 2009, 2014 and 2016 he was recognized as the most successful Slovenian alpinist by the Alpine Association of Slovenia.

Luka Lindič has since established a number of hard routes in China, India, Canada, and Europe. He has been able to score several first ascents and first free ascents like the Lindič-Leclerc Route on Mt. Tuzo, Canada (M7+ WI6+ R, 1100m, first ascent), Psychological Effect on Mt. Neptuak, Canada (M7 WI5+, 700m, first ascent) and Rolling Stones on Grandes Jorasses (M8, 6a, 1100m, 1. free ascent, on-sight).

Lindič has summited Broad Peak in the Karakorum and two weeks later he climbed the Northwest Ridge of Gasherbrum IV, reaching its North Summit (7900m). He also scored a solo ascent of the Intégrale de Peuterey Ridge on Mont Blanc in 15,5 hours.

The prolific alpinist Lindič was awarded the Piolet d’Or in 2014 for the first ascent of Hagshu on the north face in India (6657m, ED 70°-90° III, 1350 m).
