The aim: 

To provide the best guiding service and inject a true passion for climbing!

Tatra Climbing School was opened in 2014 as I wanted to give a branded presence to the services I had been providing for many years. I provide excellent and professional courses for a very affordable price in stunning locations of the Sudety Mountains. I have suitable climbing and mountaineering qualifications, professional insurance and years of experience that will ensure your peace of mind. My customers loved and enjoyed climbing with me and gave superb feedback.

  • I run climbing and mountaineering activities with great care on well-established routes in pre-checked locations.
  • I use only professional certified equipment to apply high standards of learning and above all apply the highest standards of safety.
  • After an exciting outdoor time, you will still learn skills undertaking workshops and listening to lectures in the hut/hotel.
  • Your satisfaction is my top priority. I will support you before, during the tuition and after to ensure that you can follow your passion.
  • I set prices very fairly and my service is excellent value for money.

Rock Climbing Instructor and Tatra Mountain Guide

I am actively climbing and mountaineering for nearly 20 years. I studied physical education at university which introduced me to Maciej Kurek – a climber, a mountaineer, the president of an Alpine Club and an active promoter of mountain adventures in Opole (my home town). After intense training on my homemade wall, I took my first climbing trip to the limestone of Jura and them following a mountaineering trip to the Tatra Mountains in the summer of ’98. These trips changed my life and convinced me that I wanted to do this forever. Perhaps it was the clear mountain air or the sense of freedom or the great company that decided it, but it was an amazing sense of euphoria that I still feel today.

I moved to London in 2004 and after settling in, I decided to take professional courses. I have become a member of the British Mountain Training Association and have followed their structured system to become an instructor and a guide. I quickly improved and developed my skills on the excellent and accessible rocks around the country.

Since then I have climbed in many places around Europe and beyond and had worked in many climbing walls and outdoor crags teaching climbing and mountaineering. I’m privileged to be able to share my knowledge and passion with you.

I’ll welcome you to Poland with open arms!
