Natalya (now aged twenty three) started climbing at the age of six and began her competition career at the age of nine.
From her website:
"And I did it! I sent Histerija 8c+ today and reached the new milestone in my climbing career!
I first tried Histerija at the end of November last year when I had to choose a route in a central part of Mišja peč for our documentary movie that we are making. However the climbing season ended so I only returned to the route in the beginning of March. Not everything went according to plan because each time I tried it I was tired from the intense indoor training..."
