About this site

Welcome to Climbing Chronicle, your trusted guide to the majestic world of mountains, climbing, and all the adventures that come with it. Created by a dedicated mountaineer with a passion for peak-bagging, this blog aims to inspire, inform, and help you take your mountaineering pursuits to new heights.

Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, a love for the mountains has been in my veins since childhood. Many of my fondest memories involve exploring the mountainous terrains of Carinthia with my grandparents. At the age of 30, I experienced the life-altering thrill of conquering Austria’s highest peak, Großglockner, and since then, there's been no looking back.

The Journey So Far

My climbing adventures have taken me to some of the world’s most iconic peaks, from Nevado Pisco and Chachani in Peru to Zamok and Chimtarga in Tajikistan. Whether it's facing high-altitude sickness on Spantik in Pakistan or navigating through the copper-rich terrains of Minas Escondida en route to Llullaillaco in Chile, each expedition has been a lesson in resilience, planning, and the raw beauty of nature.
