GERHARD HÖRHAGER Born in 1968 in Innsbruck. He grew up in the little village Ginzling/Dornauberg, and the Berliner Hütte in the Zillertal Alps. At the moment, he goes back and forth between his flat in Innsbruck and the Diggl Farm. After growing up in the mountains, Gerhard started climbing at age 14. For some years, from 1988 to the mid-nineties, he competed internationally.
Climbing has remained a central piece in Gerhard’s life: „I like nature, discovering new places, environments, and climbs, and the time spent together with friends and the people I encounter. I am also intrigued by the athletic aspect: the moment in which you understand what’s possible, when you work and give everything.“
