Alexander Huber, who is a UIAGM mountain guide, decided to abandon his scientific career in 1998 and to pursue an unknown path in the mountains instead.
All facets of mountaineering and rock climbing all over the world, that is his greatest passion, and together with his brother Thomas they form one of the most successful rope parties of our time.
Moreover, like his brother Thomas, Alexander is a successful public speaker and author. Apart from six books that were translated in four languages, he has held more than 1000 slideshows that inspire the audience world wide. Because of their alpine successes, but also because of the numerous articles and covers that featured them, the brothers are among the most successful mountaineers today.
They have not only reached an audience of climbers, but also a more general public. They were featured in numerous articles in famous German magazines and newspapers, like the Spiegel, the Stern, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung . They also made appearances in popular TV programs like TV Total, Mittagsmagazin, or Markus Lanz.
In 2007, the Film To the Limit had its theatrical release. It was awarded with the Bavarian Film Award and the German Camera Award. In July 2008, Thomas and Alexander were awarded the Bavarian Sports Award.
