Hermann Huber has always looked at his life as a mountaineer as a part of a puzzle – only complete when family, friendships, work, curiosity and love find their place in it. Born on September 20th in 1930, growing up in Munich and the Bavarian alps, he started working at ‘Salewa Leather items’ Company at the age of 15. He kept growing the mountain sports division until he became managing director in 1972 and was known everywhere as “Mr. Salewa”. In addition to his career, Hermann had much success with climbing across the globe. Even at an advanced age his enthusiasm and curiosity are infectious, making him a legend in the climbing world and a role model for many.

The choice of the festival

Hermann Huber is an extraordinary character. Born in Munich in 1930, he was an innovator in mountaineering equipment (inventing the modern ice screw), a world class mountaineer and above all, a man who has followed his passions throughout his life. With sparkling eyes and striking energy, he recounts the highlights of a life spent in the outdoors. The talents of director Tom Dauer illustrate that although we may grow old, passion burns an eternal flame.
