Expedition to the Ultimate

Reinhold Messner

Messner's plan to climb the great peaks of the world without the aid of bottled oxygen gained its key endorsement with his Everest ascent with Peter Habeler (1978). This was climbing's version of the "first men on the moon" as they climbed into uncharted physiological territory that was truly frightening at the time. An appendix of all Everest ascents to 2000 highlights those done since without bottled oxygen.
