Let’s give a warm welcome applause to Axel. Frequently mentioned in this blog and a friend for about 9 years, he joined as an author. We started racing together in Gstaad, back in 2006. As you can see, sharing the backpack load more or less evenly.
Axel is from Amberg, Bavaria. His father took him to the mountains in childhood days and he kept coming back.
We climbed Montblanc, Wetterhorn, Dent du Geant and several other mountains together. As you can imagine during those years we had a significant number of fights. Nevertheless, we eventually climbed together again.
Plans are now to start working on this blog and the following successor. As soon as this is viable, we will quit our jobs and relocate to Chamonix to climb and blog only.
More stupid photos, to underline the history we share:
