Marcin is a climber, alpinist, and instructor. Many times he was awarded in Poland and abroad for his climbing achievements. From the beginning of his mountain adventure, the most inspirational for him was to set new roads: first in the Tatras and later on the most inaccessible and vertical walls. Although he has already assembled an impressive collection of new lines on prominent mountains in the Karakorum, the Alps, Venezuela, Baffin, and Greenland, every year he feels an increasing want of more. His climbing activity is not only climbing in the mountains, but also the promotion of climbing in Poland through trainings, climbing sections, organization of competitions and shows, and conducting radio programs. In 2017 he published the book # Yeti40 which summarizes his climbing career so far.
