Mina Leslie-Wujastyk started climbing at the age of 8 at an indoor wall after her parents noticed her love for playing on any climbing frame available. She was hooked instantly and ever since it has been a huge part of her life. During her teenage years she climbed mostly routes and then moved to Sheffield after a short break from the sport. Mina rediscovered her love for climbing and has been totally engulfed by it since. She finished her degree in 2008 and took time out to go on a series of long trips; mainly bouldering. It was on these trips that Mina stepped up her climbing and has now climbed numerous V9-11s across Switzerland, Fontainebleau and Rocklands. Still living in Sheffield, she enjoys training for trips and also competes for the British Bouldering Team at international events.
Mina has recently developed a liking for highball boulder problems, seduced by the impressive, classic lines such as Misericorde (7C+) and Irreversible (7C) in Fontainebleau. She also has recently climbed Big Golden (7C+) – one of the classics on her life time list...
Mina also enjoys route climbing still and has climbed up to F 8a+ in the Peak District. She would like to focus more on her route climbing again at some point, but for now is very involved pushing herself in bouldering.
Looking into 2012, Mina is training hard with hopes of competing well in the World Cup circuit and then going to Colorado in the summer for two months of bouldering.
