Since Markus was 14 years old, he is a very motivated, enthusiastic mountaineer. From growing up in Carinthia, he went out into the world to explore mountains like Cerro Torre (Patagonia), Eiger Nordwand and the Grand Jorasses Nordwand. It doesn’t matter if it’s Rockclimbing, Iceclimbing or Mountainclimbing, we can always rely on Markus and really appreciate to have him in our team.
Born and raised in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps in Austria. Mountaineering in all manifestations became my passion. In winter on skis, climbing in summer and on expeditions in far away countries all over the world. Since more than 30 years as a professional mountain guide I still love to see the smiling faces of my guests after having a successful tour. On evenings sittting around the woodfire people love to listen my stories of lifechanging adventures.
