FISH FREE SOLO - INTERVIEW 08
A close call, a serious decision to be taken within a few seconds. The experience you get out of it is exactly what all is about. Intense feelings. I’m not the guy who would be happy by going a step back. Life is too short to miss it out and the thirst for living the moment and the great unknown is always strong for me. But cutting edge alpinism means taking risk. I try to work situation sorin benefits to make it reasonable.
I share two different lectures for public audience.
Furthermore I also offer GLIMPSE, a keynote speech for a smaller and private audience.

Free Solo Climbing in the Alps, beyond the limits on Masherbrum Northeastface (7821m), the first ascent of Kunyang Chhish East (7400m) in the Karakorum Mountains and the days on Nilgiri South Southface (6839m) in the Himalayas.
Hansjörg will talk about his passion Free Solo Climbing and will take the viewer on a journey from the wintry peaks and towers of the Alps to the mountains of Nepal and Pakistan. The first ascent of Kunyang Chhish East (7400m) in the Karakorum Mountains via the 2700m high Southwestface is one of the highlights of his career. But he will also talk about his darkest moment so far which he had to experience on Nilgiri South in fall 2015.
The Beginning, Fish Free Solo, Marmolada – New Wave and Bigwall Climbing in Perfection Valley at Baffin Island’s East Coast.
The Free Solo ascent of the „Fish“ is without doubt one of the greatest achievements in history of alpinism. But Hansjörg is not only speaking about climbing. Who is going with him? Who is giving him inspiration? He will also tell the stories of his new route „Bruderliebe“ and the first free ascent of „L´ultimo dei Paracadutisti“, both climbs on the southface of Marmolada. During the second part of his lecture, he will take the audience far up north to Perfection Valley on the East Coast of Baffin Island.
