Josef Milfait

Mountain leader and alpine skier.

He has been surrounded by mountains since his childhood as he was born in Trutnov. The breakthrough moment for him was on the Mer de Glace Glacier where he used his crampons for the first time and took an ice axe into his hand. Another significant experience for him was a visit to the Caucasus. Upon conquering Elbrus he wanted to climb even higher. So he decided to conquer all peaks in Pamir and Tian Shan that are over seven thousand meters high. These were followed by Shishaphangma and Cho Oyu.
