Reinhold Messner’s feats are famous :

  • Solo first ascents on the largest fronts of the Dolomite elevations in northern Italy.
  • The foreclosing North Face (Nordwand) of Switzerland‘s Eiger clambered in a quick 10 hours with Peter Habeler in 1974.
  • The first being, along with partner Habeler, to clamber Mount Everest, highest elevation in “the worlds”, without supplemental oxygen in 1978.

  • The second person to climb the Seven Summits, the highest points on the 7 continents.
  • Later Messner originated jaunts to the North and South Poles, spanned the Gobi Desert in central Asia on foot and researched and wrote a work about the loathsome Yeti.

Messner’s Early Climbing Days

The first paraphrase about Messner’s first rising in 1965 of the 600 meter high North Face of the Grosse Fermeda in the Dolomites comes from Messner’s 1989 autobiography. He learned to love clambering and to clamber from “his fathers” and later, as a young man, “his fathers” would lend him his Lambretta motor scooter so Reinhold and his brother Gunther could speculation to farther reaches, greater adventures, and first ascents.

Reinhold writes : “He was generous when it came to establishing us our discretion in the mountains”.

Messner Quote From Free Spirit : A Climber’s Life

Today I am astounded that my father did not forbid us to make such first ascent. At that time I had a confused picture of discretion : today the mention is the only thing people know about discretion.

They want to be free of laws, free of everyday cares, free of dislike, free of end. Who knows what discretion is? No one. I often think that we mountaineers get nearest to it, this paradise on dirt. Or, to throw it a different way : the rightfully free climber is one who obeys no settles. He is no high flyer, keeping up with the Joneses no slave of others or of the summit dusk position, like the directisima men. I am sorry for them all, but especially for those who do not realize at all that rules force their course between them and the mountains.

Messner Quote From The Crystal Horizon : Everest

“When I rest I experience completely lifeles except that my throat blazes when I draw breath. I is hardly go on. No anguish, no delight, no tension. I have not lost the supremacy of my beliefs, there are actually no more beliefs. I correspond exclusively of will. After each few meters this too fizzles out in unending tiredness. Then I reckon good for nothing. I tell myself fall, merely lie there. For an indefinite era I abide fully irresolute. Then I make a few paces again.

Messner Quote From The Telegraph Interview 2008

Mountaineering has become part of tourism. Today you can buy an rising of Everest like you can buy a expedition to Rome.

You can buy the summit and be taken there as a sightseer, but you cannot buy the experience I had or that Edmund Hillary or Chris Bonnington had 1953 first rising of Mount Everest 1975 rising of Everest Southwest Face. Real mountaineering means that you  or you and your partner are solely responsible for what you do and the decision you make. It is completely different”. (Interview in The Telegraph with Adrian Bridge, 2008)

Mesner Quote Ponder “Things”

“The wonderful things in life are the things you do, not the things you have”.

Messner Quote From The Crystal Horizon : Everest

“Not exclusively during the course of its rising, but also during the course of its descent my willpower is monotonous. The longer I clamber the less important the goal seem to be me, the more apathetic I become to myself. My courtesy has increased, my storage is diminished .

My mental tirednes is now greater than the bodily. It is so pleasant to sit doing nothing and therefore so dangerous. Death through tired is like fatality
through freezing a cheery one”

    Maybe you could space it out better?
