Image Description

"Sorry, Herr Messner! Didn't know that it was your toe..."

"Reinhold Messner is an Italian mountaineer, adventurer, explorer, and author from the autonomous Italian province of South Tyrol. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest mountaineers of all time.

He is renowned for making the first ascent of Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen along with Peter Habeler, and for being the first climber to ascend all fourteen "eight-thousanders" (peaks over 8,000 metres (26,000 ft) above sea level). He is the author of at least 63 books, many of which have been translated into other languages."
