Luka Lindic - Slovenia
Testimonial

Luka Lindic was born in Celje (Slovenia) in 1988. He has been climbing since 2003 and he was already part of an expedition to Pakistan in 2008, where he carried out the first repetition of the Anderson-House-Prezelj route (2200 m, 6c, M6) on K7 West. Alert and methodical, Luka focuses on training and exercising and is enthusiastic about the history of alpinism; this is the reason why it did not take long for him to stand out as one of the purest talents of his generation. He opened an astonishing three new routes in the Bhagirathi group (India) in 2009, setting the tone for a series of “first ascents” that would carry on in several continents, from Europe to the Americas as far as the heavyweights in Asia. In 2014 he excelled for the first free ascent of Rolling Stones (1100 m, M8, 6a) on the north face of the Grandes Jorasses (Mont Blanc) and especially for his Himalayan feat on Hagshu (a new, 1350-metre long route, 70°-90°, III) awarded with the Piolet d’Or. He was in Canada in 2016, where he opened the routes Lindic-Leclerc (1100 m, M7+, WI6+, R) on Mount Tuzo and Psychological effect (700 m, M7, WI5+) on Mount Neptuak; he then went to Pakistan, where he reached the top of Broad Peak (8047 m) and the north face of Gasherbrum IV (7900 m). On that prolific year, he also climbed on Kyzyl Asker together with Ines: their bond, both on the rock and in life, had started. As far as grading is concerned, Luka has climbed up to 8c on rock and M13 on a mixed terrain.
