Heckmair was one of the leading pre-war German climbers. He started mountaineering in the late 1920s and made the first ascent of the Grand Charmoz North Face in 1931. In the early 1930s, he made bold ascents of Tre Cima di Lavaredo, the Cima Grande North Face (first alpine ascent in five hours without a bivouac), Civetta North West face, and others. Heckmair is best known for leading the first ascent of the Eiger North Face in 1935. His major expeditions included the 1954 German-Austrian expedition to the Karakoram, Pakistan, 1960 in Africa (Ruewnzori and Hoggar) in Kenya through Algiers, 1963 in South America (Cordillera Blanca, Peru) and in 1965 to Mt. Waddington, the Rocky Mountains and Mexico. In German, no English translation.
