 Fritz Wintersteller

 

Fritz Wintersteller (21. Oktober 1927) never pursued a professional climbing career nor did he follow any finacial interest with his love for the mountains. He had to stop rock climbing early because of a badly broken leg. Later, Fritz climbed every 4000m peak in the Alps except three, which he did not consider being beautiful.
