Maciek Ciesielski

Biography

Current Residence: Zakopane, Poland

"Everything is up to the head."

In climbing, Maciek is attracted to the commonality between disciplines, which is why he does almost every type of climbing and looks for solutions in equipment and clothing based on his year-round experiences.

2002 was a breakthrough year—Maciek left his career as sewage engineer and flew to Alaska where he made four ascents in four weeks. A move to Yosemite followed and thus began his climbing rhythm: winter in Norway, Iran or Patagonia, spring in Yosemite, summer in Alps, Pakistan or Greenland, autumn in Tatras, Poland. Life following the sun and the snow.

Since 2010 Maciek has been working as IVBV/IFMGA/UIAGM guide. Any spare time beyond that goes to his family —   fiery son, beautiful daughter and the best partner he has ever had, his wife.
