Reinhold Messner

Reinhold Messner is the world's greatest mountaineer. After serving his apprenticeship in the Alps and Dolomites, he climbed in the Andes, North America and New Guinea before starting on his quest to climb all the world's 8,000-metre peaks, a feat which he completed in 1986. He has since completed a traverse of the Antarctic and now lectures throughout the world on his exploits.
