Tine Cuder, a prominent rock climber and President of the Mountain Rescue Society of Bovec, was born in 1979 and remains rooted in the mountainous town of Bovec, Slovenia. His childhood experiences, tending sheep and goats on Mangart Pasture, forged a deep bond with the rocky and mountinous world.
Inspired by his father's alpine pursuits, Cuder embarked on his climbing journey in 1997, focusing on Mt. Mangart and Zapotok's walls.
With a dedication to rescue operations, he joined the Mountain Rescue Society in 2008 and presently serves as its president, leveraging his alpine expertise to aid those in mountain crises.
To further broaden his skills, Cuder also completed training as a flying rescuer, joining the Brnik helicopter rescue team.
Professionally, he manages a farm, specializing in cheese production. Despite his farming commitments, Cuder has triumphed in 600 ascents, favoring winter alpine climbing, ice, and mixed routes in his remarkable climbing career.
