Messner's ascents of the 14 8,000-meter peaks, all without oxygen and many solo, is the greatest mountaineering feat of all time. In addition to the stories, this book is a reference for the 8000 meter peaks mountaineering feat of all time.
 
In addition to the stories, this book is a reference for the 8000 meter peaks. Reinhold Messner is recognized as one of the greatest mountaineers of all time. When he reached the 8511-meter summit of Lhotse in Nepal, he became the first man to stand on all 14 of the world's 8000-meter peaks-an unbelievable achievement and a sensation in mountaineering history.
 
What motivated Messner to be so dedicated in pursuit of his goal, despite unbelievable hardships, to keep confronting danger and death, loneliness and self-doubt? What thoughts and feeling occupied him when faced with his inner self and the highest mountains of the world? The answers to these questions can be found in this revealing memoir. Through engaging text and full-color and black-and-white photos, readers will get a glimpse of the preparation, organization, and running of an expedition, and share rare moments on the summits of the world's highest peaks.
 
These are the 14 8000 meter peaks: Mount Everest, K2, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Nanga Parbat, Annapurna, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak, Shishapangma, Gasherbrum II.

WORLD'S FIRST PERSON TO ASCEND ALL THE 8,000 METER PEAKS

There are 14 peaks in the world that surpass the 8,000 meter mark, all located in the Himalayan or Karakoram mountain ranges in Asia, and many climbers are in the process of trying to climb them all.

The first person to conquer the 14 peaks is Italian Reinhold Messner who climbed his first 8,000 meter peak in 1970 and finished his last in 1986.

Here is a list of the fourteen 8,000 meter peaks and the year Reinhold Messner climbed them:
