Extreme sportsman, businessman, author, husband and father – Benedikt Böhm leads a life that is likely to be much more varied than most. Yet, he doesn’t like to make compromises – the 38-year-old has been at the top of his game since the age of ten. “It’s not ambition that drives me, it’s much more the love for this sport and the constant desire to keep moving in a peaceful, balanced and secluded world,” he says. Today, as an extreme mountaineer, Böhm has been conquering eight-thousanders, such as the Manaslu in Nepal, in his free time… and he does so as quick as a flash! He recounts his experiences in Nepal in his first book, entitled “Im Angesicht des Manaslu” (Facing Manaslu – only available in German).
