Ivan started climbing in 2001 and immediately fell in love with the ‘raw’ feel of the sport. Inspired by the mental challenges and the lessons it taught about commitment, trust and fear, he quickly got himself certified as national route setter. He was chief route setter for local bouldering and climbing competitions between 2006-2009.
Personally, he has red pointed 8c in spain, and boulder v12 in Heuco Tanks. Beside climbing, Ivan has built more than 500 walls in Singapore, setup more than 80 competition walls between 2004~2021, and is the only wall builder to setup 2 temporary psicobloc in Singapore in 2017 and 2018. Certified wall builder for Entre-prises, Walltopia and DISCOVERY system
He is also designer and course setter for Urban Attack from 2016~2019. With all these experiences, he hope to continue to dream big and share what he have learnt with the climbers and ninjas.
