Stephan Siegrist: The Alpinist
I live for mountain climbing! It’s the love of nature that pulls me to the summit. I like the simple life on the mountain, living in tune with the elements. This passion burns bright inside of me. It’s what incites me, every day.´
Stephan Siegrist was born 1972 in Meikirch, Switzerland. On a good day, the beautiful Bernese Alps could be seen from the small urban village just outside of Bern. Upon completing his school studies, Stephan pursued an apprenticeship as a carpenter. Shortly after, the mountains would win Stephan over after his first ski tour awoke the passion that would later become his career. He decided to further his training - this time as a mountain guide.
Since the age of 26 years, Stephan has earned his living as a professional alpinist and mountain guide. He now lives in Ringgenberg with his wife and family.
One of many remarkable achievements in his mountaineering career is having made first ascents on all 7 continents. Ascents of the great north faces of the Alps, in particular the Eiger North Face, expeditions and projects in Northern India and Nepal, North America, Antarctica, South Africa and Patagonia. In addition to these highlights, Stephan Siegrist repeatedly awes with his impressive and creative range of climbing projects. He excels not only in bouldering and sport climbing, but has also proven his talent in big wall, ice and mixed climbing. One of his unique talents is walking the highline and base jumping.
