Peter Hámor

Himalaya adventure

Profile (eng)

Peter Hámor is a high altitude mountaineer of Slovak origin, with numerous interesting and difficult ascents to peaks of the highest mountains of the world. He victoriously climbed all of the highest mountains on the planet („the fourteen eight-thousanders“) with Mount Everest (8,848 m), the tallest of them, being his first one. He stood on the peak of Annapurna (8,091 m) twice, regardless of her reputation of being the most dangerous among them. During his first climb on Annapura in 2006, he reached the main peak through a new route in the south face by solo ascent, followed by the long East Ridge through Roc Noir peak (7,485 m). In the same year, he also successfully climbed Cho Oyu (8,201 m) and Broad Peak (8,047 m). Next came Nanga Parbat (8,126 m) in 2007 via the Diamir Face and travers of Gasherbrum I (8,068 m) from the south using alpine style in combination with Gasherbrum II (8,035 m) in 2008. His second Annapurna ascent was in 2010 via the classic route in the north face, and in 2011, he reached the peak of Makalu (8,463 m). In 2012, he climbed Kangchenjunga (5,586 m), the third tallest mountain in the world, alone via the British route and finished the very victorious season by reaching the peak of the second highest mountain, K2 (8,611 m). Following that, in 2013, was Lhotse (8,516 m), the fourth highest. Next was Shishapangma in the spring of 2014 (8,027 m, the smallest of the eight-thousanders). After two years, in 2016, he ascended Manaslu (8,163 m), and in May of this year, he climbed Dhaulagiri (8,167 m). Peter Hámor is the only Slovak who completed both The Crown of The Himalayas (ascended all fourteen eight-thousanders), and The Crown of The Earth (ascended the highest mountains of all continents). He is the author of the book KORUNA ZEME (The Crown of The World).
