Nicolas Hojac PRO TEAM Mountaineering

MOUNTAINS ARE THE HARSHEST BUT ALSO THE FAIREST TEACHERS YOU CAN GET. IF YOU ALWAYS FOLLOW THEIR RULES, THEY WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE MOST AMAZING MOMENTS.

DATE OF BIRTH July 13, 1992

RESIDENCE Niederscherli (Switzerland)

WITH MAMMUT since 2012, Pro Team since 2017

WHAT GOT YOU INTO MOUNTAINEERING? When I was 12 years old, my parents sent me to Val de Ferret to learn French. Instead of learning the language, I discovered a love for the mountains. From that moment on, I always spent a lot of time out in the mountains.

WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS? I would like to visit the world's mountains and explore as much new terrain as possible. Whether classic mountaineering, mixed climbing or big walls. When I'm home in the Alps, I'm becoming more and more involved with projects that also involve paragliding.
