MUDr. Ivan Žila, PhD.

Ivan Žila about himself:

I'm a climber. I like the motion, "stick to catch, stand on the degree."
In the beginning was the word and it sounded: "Climb!". Over the rocks in Blatnice, Manín, Vtáčnik or Súľov it got into Tatras, then to the Alps and Karakoram.
And I climbed, so we climbed. Friends, mates.
So much joy and experiences you have to share and we shared it together. In the Arc, in Chamonix, in the Tatras. On rock, ice, powder snow and firn. In bivouacs,on the skis, in troughs and ridges, in the race and after.

Today, as a mountain guide-aspirant I know and I want to help you experience something similar. Safely and professionally. And with joy ........
