David's brother Erik built up a wealth of experience in the harsh local conditions of Vorarlberg by climbing all the 9,000+ ft summits. Erik's passion for mountaineering has also taken him to the top of Dachstein and further afield to the Julian Alps of Slovenia.
Born in Vorarlberg, Hannes now lives in Innsbruck where he teaches mathematics. A passionate mountaineer and mushroom picker, Hannes has all the Tyrolean 9,000+ ft peaks under his belt. Hannes' love for travel has also taken him to the top of Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) and Popocatepetl (Mexico).
A central figure in the Czech climbing scene in the seventies, David's father Petr fled communist Czechoslovakia with his family in 1982 and established in Feldkirch where he now teaches psychology, philosophy and sport. With major Alpine summits to his credit - including Mont Blanc - Petr brings years of mountaineering experience across the Alps and the Tatras to the team.
Eva started climbing in 1966 in and around Czechoslovakia. Back then this daredevil would climb technical sandstone ascents with just a rope around her waist. Today Eva teaches sport in Feldkirch and likes to take things a bit more leisurely. A great hostess by nature, she ensures the group is well looked after.
