Even though his mother, the great British mountaineer Alison Hargreaves, died on K2 when he was only 6 years old, Tom Ballard never turned his back on the mountain, indeed, he dedicated his life fully to it, until he disappeared on an expedition to Nanga Parbat in February 2019, at the age of 30 years. Among the fabulous feats of his short but intense alpine career, he highlighted the project of climbing alone, and in winter, the six major alpine north faces: the Cima Grande di Lavaredo, the Piz Badile, the Matterhorn, the Grandes Jorasses, the Petit Dru and the Eiger. He became the first person to complete this feat in a single season. His father was his greatest support, from austerity and with a comprehensive character.
