Participant in the 1956 Expedition

Fritz Luchsinger 1921 – 1983, responsible for equipment and clothing.

First ascent of Lhotse on 18th May 1956

Fritz Luchsinger was in the same rope team as Ernst Reiss and Dölf Reist. These three were very different in character, but formed a homogenous group, in which Luchsinger’s place was vital, with his energy, stamina, selflessness and keen powers of observation.
