Our lecturers are well known explorers, mountaineers, travel writers, TV personalities, adventure sports personalities or anyone who has an epic story to tell and can enthral our audience with a rattling good yarn. The talks are invariably illustrated with slides and/or film.
Peter Habeler - 09/12/2021 19:30
Habeler and Messner were an inseparable duo, climbing many 8000m peaks without supplemental oxygen, including Cho Oyu, Nanga Parbat, Kanchenjunga, Hidden Peak and Everest, on May 8th 1978, an achievement that had been previously thought impossible.
Peter founded the Peter Habeler Ski and Mountaineering School in his hometown of Mayrhofen, Austria. In 1999 he was granted the title “Professor” by the Austrian Government.
Peter will talk about the highlights of his long Alpine life, including the hardest routes in the Dolomites, fast ascents of the North faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn and other peaks and, naturally, the ascent of Mt. Everest he made with Reinhold Messner. Peter is still climbing hard, 2 years ago, aged 77, he climbed the Eiger North face in winter again and 3 months ago he ascended the north face of the Cime Grande.
