Janja Garnbret

The Best Climber in the World

Share: FB TW

Janja is currently the most versatile climber in the world and a six-time world champion.

In 2019, she made history in Japan as the first female climber to win three gold medals in one championship - in speed, bouldering and lead.
The queen of climbing is prone to perfectionism and always sets her goals high. The remarkable "spider," as the media affectionately calls her, swept the competition at the Tokyo Olympics in August 2021 and became the first Olympic champion in sport climbing in history.


During the 2020 pandemic, Janja Garnbret and Domen Škofic climbed the Trbovlje chimney, considered the tallest building in Slovenia and the tallest chimney in Europe, towering at 360 metres.
