Emil Zsigmondy

Emil Zsigmondy ( Vienna , 1861 . August 11 – Meije, Dauphiné Alps, 1885 . August 6 ), climbing, still the most famous Hungarian-born climber in the world.

At the age of just 24, he died in the Alps in 1885 while climbing the Pic de la Meije as a result of a rope break. This short life was enough for him to earn a medical degree, climb many of the tops, many of them first, and write several books, of which “Dangers of the Alps” is a climbing literature that has been usefully rotated to date, and has so far received 11 editions in three languages. .

His brother is Richard Zsigmondy, a Nobel Prize-winning chemist, and Ottó Zsigmondy, who was also a climber. His aunt, Frigyes Schulek, is the mother of Augusta Zsigmondy .
