Ralf Dujmovits lives in Germany’s Black Forest and, whenever he finds the time, he heads off sport climbing in the Alps or to other mountaineering expeditions. Between school and his medical studies he spent a year touring the world and later climbed the highest mountains on all seven continents with his clients.
He became a public figure in 1999 after a 33-hour live TV broadcast of his climb of the north face of Eiger. He counts among the most experienced high-altitude mountaineers and mountain guides in the world with more than 40 expeditions. Ralf Dujmovits is the first German to have stood on the peaks of all 14 eight-thousanders.
