Favorite climb: Lenin

Zsolt started his passionate love relationship with mountains as early as age 5. As a 7-year-old child, he was already climbing the Retezat Mountains in the Carpathians. Then, at the age of 16, he gave his heart to rock-climbing and there was no turning back. In 2013 he was the leader of the expedition that reached the top of Nanga Parbat, the “killer mountain” of 8125m, on the Rupal wall, the highest alpine wall in the world. He was on Everest several times, even during the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015.

With 27 years of mountaineering experience including climbs such as the notoriously hard Alpine trilogy of Eiger, Matterhorn, and Grand Jorasses North face, and the Mont Blanc Peuterey Integral, you’ll be in safe hands with Zsolt.
