Detailed Product Description


SIGNED by Reinhold Messner, Kurt Diemberger and Krzysztof Wielicki

Seattle, 1988, 1st edition. 248 pp, 113 color photos, maps. Large format hardcover, New condition with dust jacket.

Large book; extra postage will be requested for Domestic as well as International Mail.

Messner's ascents of the 14 8,000-meter peaks, 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 history and routes of 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.
 
Kurt Diemberger, an Austrian climber, is best known for making the first ascents of two 8000 meter peaks, Dhaulagiri and Broad Peak.  He also climbed Everest, K2, Makalu and Gasherbrum II.
 
Robert Schauer, also Austrian, has climbed Everest twice, Gasherbrum I, Nanga Parbat, Makalu, Broad Peak, the west face of Gasherbrum IV, and the Eiger North Face in winter. He was the assistant director of the Everest Imax film in 1996, during the Into Thin Air events.


Reinhold Messner is:

THE 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. As of May 2021, 43 climbers have achieved this feat. Six more climbers may have climbed them all, but at least one peak is in dispute. Usually it is a matter of reaching the highest point which is not always obvious.

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:
