Klaus Haring #153
(Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)  
Returning from Mt Vic via unnamed peak in background early Sept 1993
The intrepid Klaus Haring was born in Austria at the end of WW 2, and grew up in the town of Salzburg (See the 1960 Classic Film "Sound of Music"). Came to Canada as a young man, taking the Canadian Pacific Railway train "The Canadian" across the country from Montreal to Vancouver. Worked at BC Hydro for over 30 years. One of his first big trips upon reaching Vancouver was a 16 day traverse of Garibaldi Park, one of the highlights of which was a starvation diet, before emerging at Allouette Lake.

Over the years, Klaus has done hundreds of trips, most often solo, into obscure parts of the mountains - not necessarily brand name peaks, but often going into areas and routes that have not received much if any traffic. In addition, served for many years as a volunteer guide with the Alpine Club of Canada, for which he was awarded the prestigious "Silver Rope" award. He has also served as chief guide on many private trips in BC and often as trip leader for the Vancouver Section of the Alpine Club.

Klaus is known to have extensive notes concerning the locations of many items of strategic mountaineering interest such as logging roads, etc. He is also known to study weather reports endlessly, and to not budge from his house unless weather looks good. Klaus is currently retired from BC Hydro and engaged in his lifetime occupation of world travel and climbing.
