Thomas and Alexander Huber are the best-known climbing brothers in the world - and a real brand. Together, but also separately, the Huber brothers have opened up new dimensions with their projects and written alpine history. Today at 22.25 p.m. ServusTV shows an exciting portrait of the two exceptional athletes.
The Huber boy – this name has long been a household name in mountaineering circles. Because the two choice Berchtesgadener Thomas and Alexander Huber are not only top-class mountaineers, but have also been the best climbing brothers in the world for three decades and a real brand.
The world's most difficult sport climbing routes, the ascent of the most spectacular peaks, crazy free solo tours and unbelievable speed climbing records, grandiose expeditions and climbing adventures in the most extreme regions of the earth - the Huber brothers have a bulging "book of memories".
They have formed a seemingly perfect rope team since they were young. And yet: Both are two strong individuals with very different characters and corresponding egos, who sometimes loudly clash.
Together, but also separately, the Huber brothers have opened up new dimensions with their projects and written alpine history. Joy and happiness, but also failure and arguments were often close together. The brothers experienced ups and downs, falls and triumphs. On the mountain - when something suddenly goes wrong - but also off the beaten track when body and mind no longer play along.
