Hans Frisch, born 1930 in Bad Ischl/Austria, moved to Bruneck – Brunico/South Tyrol (Italy) at the age of 3. He became a baker by trade and took over his father’s firm that he expanded to a modern big company called „Frischbrot“.
But his favourite hobby from his years as a teenager on was rock climbing and mountaineering in the Dolomites – he was the first climber of more than a dozen routes, i.e. the north face of the „Kleine Zinne“ alone during winter. The famous pioneer, mountain guide, and mountain rescuer Hans Frisch has documented many of his tours with his Leica photo camera.
