Last week I’ve climbed Grossglockner with my 77 year old dad via the Stüdle Ridge.
Despite the fact that we didn’t go very fast it was a really beautiful climb with great weather.
For both myself and my father it was a very emotional experience as in the early days when I was young he used to lead and now, after not having climbing together for a few years, it was my turn to take the lead. He handed over his great passion and hobby to me. Felt great for us to have done this together and put this crown on his climbing career.
I think the movie speaks for itself; have a look and if you have any questions about the climb feel free to ask!
Also for my father it was a very personal victory; 2 years ago he had to undergo bypass surgery because of Angina Pectoris. Right after the surgery he didn’t thought he could ever do this ever again and now he climbed this really classic alpine route!
As you can imagine I’m very proud!
