SIGNED by Oswald Oelz and Reinhold Messner
 
In 1972, Oelz attempted Manaslu (8.163 m) in the Himalayas. In 1979, he tried an ascent of Ama Dablam (6.856 m) North-East Ridge. Oelz accompanied an expedition to Shishapangma (8.027 m) in 1981 and 1982 failed on Cho Oyu (8.188 m) due to a brain ödema. Most glacier Dome (7.193 m) in the Annapurna massif 1983 he survived an avalanche burials. With the Shishapangma, Oelz ascended its second eight-Thousander in 1985. An attempt to climb the Makalu (8,485 m) was in 1986. Oelz reached the Summit of Ama Dablam in 1995.

Oswald Oelz in 1990 becaome the third man (after Morrow and Messner) to complete all the seven summits for the Carstensz Version (Aconcagua (6.962 m, 1974 & 1986), Mount McKinley (6.195 m, 1976), Mount Everest (1978), Mount Vinson (4.892 m, 1986), Kibo (5,895 m)), 1987), Mount Kosciuszko (2.228 m, 1989), Elbrus (volcano m, 1989) and Puncak Jaya (4,884 m, 1990).

He also climbed three of the great Alps North faces: Matterhorn (4.478 m) and Eiger Nordwand (3.970 m) and the Walker pillar of the Grandes Jorasses (4.208 m).
 
Mountaineering in many forms is the ideal complement for Oswald Oelz of life for today's virtual world and plasticized. We have isolated us from the earth, we feel the rain, cold seasons and rarely, the food comes from packaging and disposable sanitary water from the bottle. When mountain climbing, we return to that world in which our evolution has taken place.
 
Key to survival is a protected bivouac, a stove for melting snow, potatoes, a little Parmesan and sharp crampons weapons. Therein lies the regenerative power of renewal in the wilderness, climbing into uncharted terrain bullying, the Tax Office and the horsepower of your car inconsequential. The batteries charge while walking in the Indian highlands of challenges in the canyons of the city of Zurich or Berlin.
 
This life is always threatened, more than two dozen friends of the author are directly from cliffs, avalanches and crevasses already gone ahead into the unknown land. Some times a friend Hein has also been targeted on Oswald Oelz and just missed him. Grazing shots like boulders, avalanches, and pulmonary edema erupting hooks make wonderful life-confident, he climbs to be intense and not to die. 'The secret life of the fertile life means dangerous, so: build your houses on Vesuvius,' said Nietzsche. Mountain climbing is a wonderful Alternative.Die messages from Jabal Misht, Cholatse, and Heiligkreuzkofel Triemlispital are simple: Do we live this great life, as long as we only imagine that it will end someday, and not until the last week has begun. Larger hardcover, New with Dust Jacket.
