"Despite my advanced age of 52, I still feel very young at heart and the prospect of climbing many technical alpine routes fills me with joy."
What brought you to mountaineering?
My father started training me to be a mountaineer when I was just a little boy. Mountaineering is like an addiction and a way of life for me! At the age of 21, I was working as a ski and mountain guide and began my expeditions.
Dreams and goals?
I have a lot of dreams. A lifetime is not long enough to achieve them all!
