Profile (eng)

Slovak alpinist and mountaineering instructor from Poprad. He has made a number of challenging expeditions and ascents both in his home country and abroad. Mt. Everest being Peter’s first peak over 8000m, he has made twelve of them so far and has been the first mountaineer ever to climb the most dangerous 8000m peak Annapurna from both sides, the first  of the ascent being a solo on the main summit of Annapurna via a new route in the south face of Roc Noir and the long East Ridge together with two Polish friends of his – Piotr Pustelnik and Piotr Morawski – in 2006. Peter climbed Cho Oyu and Broad Peak in the same year. And more successful projects followed: Nanga Parbat via Diamir Face in 2007, a traverse of Gasherbrum I from south to north in alpine style combined with an ascent on Gasherbrum II in 2008, Peter’s second ascent on Annapurna now via the North Face in 2010, Makalu via the French route in 2011 and two demanding ascents in 2012 when Peter climbed the third highest mountain in the world the Kangchenjunga via the British route, and finished that successful season by climbing the second highest mountain K2. He succeeded in reaching the top of his eleventh 8000er Lhotse in 2013, and the smallest 8000er Shishapangma in spring 2014. Peter Hámor is the only Slovak climber to have climbed the highest peaks of all the continents in addition to the 8000m peaks of the Himalayas and the Karakoram. He is the author of the book KORUNA ZEME (The Crown of the Earth).
