Detailed Product Description
Munich. 1951, 4th edition. 134 pages, b/w photos on panels. In German. Linen hardcover with worn dust jacket, book is fine. Fine condition.

Sepp Brunhuber was one of the most outstanding Viennese climbers in the 1930s. Considered by some to be an artist of climbing. For example, he climbed the partially icy, disreputable Marmolada south pillar barefoot. With Franz Kasparek, he repeatedly attempted some of the most difficult routes, such as the second ascent on the Civetta northwest wall and the fourth ascent of the Western Pinnacle north wall (1933 and 1937). He also made first ascents, such as the western edge of Monte Pelmo, the Pelmetto north ridge, the northwest wall and the north intersection of the Dreiherrenspitze, two extremely difficult rock formations.

Brunhuber was best known for his winter feats: In the winter of 1933/34, he skied the Alps with Julia Huber Schi from the Vienna Woods to Mont Blanc, and rode bicycles back afterward. He and Kasparek were the winter pioneers of Preußriß in 1938 and Große-Zinne-Nordwand in 1939. His ascent of the Hochtor-Nordwand and Pfannlweg in February 1941 with Kasparek and Adi Wiegeleare are among the outstanding feats of extreme winter alpinism, as well as the north pillar of the Rauriser Sonnblick in 1940 with Adi Wiegele and Otto Pelzler. He also has the first winter crossing of the Reichensteinstocks in March 1946 with Konrad Abl. About his Winterbergfahrten he wrote his now out of print book "Walls in Winter" in 1951.
