Alpine journeys, climbs and worldwide expeditions Welcome
It's not about success, it’s about the experiences along the way.
This is Stephan Siegrist’s 19th expedition to Patagonia but his first to the northern inland ice. It poses great challenges for the professional alpinist and his climbing partners Nicolas Hojac and Lukas Hinterberger, but the Swiss trio is rewarded with a grand new route on the 2600-meter-high Cerro Cachet.
Roger Schaeli and I were the first to successfully climb Silverback, a new route on the west face of the Rotbrätt on Jungfrau in June 2019.
On 14 October 2017 German alpinist Thomas Huber and the Swissmen Stephan Siegrist and Julian Zanker made the first ascent of ‘Har Har Mahadev’, a new climb up the NW Face of Cerro Kishtwar. This is only the 4th ascent of the 6155 m peak located in the Indian Himalaya.
From 29 to 30 December 2016 Thomas Huber, Stephan Siegrist and Roger Schaeli scored the long-awaited second ascent of Metanoia, Jeff Lowe’s masterpiece on the North Face of the Eiger. The route was established solo over a period of nine days in winter 1991 by the leading American alpinist and, despite attempts, had been unrepeated. Thomas Huber provides the report.
The Swiss professional alpinist and Mammut Pro Team athlete Stephan Siegrist realized an extraordinary balancing act in the summit region of Kilimanjaro. He set a world record by walking a highline at 5,700 meters above sea level.
The sunlight then suddenly shines through the "Martinsloch", a triangular window in the rock face, casting a beam of light over the lanes and rooftops of the village of Elm in the Swiss canton of Glarus.
In September and October 2015 Andreas Abegglen, Thomas Senf and Stephan Siegrist made the first ascents of Bhala (5.900m), Tupendeo (5.700m) and Maha Dev Phobrang (5.900m) and its famous Te tower, three hitherto unclimbed mountains in the Kashmir region of India's Himalaya.
