Reinhold Messner*

‘He is renowned for making the first solo ascent of Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen and for being the first climber to ascend all fourteen “eight-thousanders” (peaks over 8,000 metres (26,000 ft) above sea level).’
— Reinhold Messner – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

His first ascent of Everest without supplementary oxygen happened 2 years before I was born!

‘We are free to go everywhere, but we are not free to destroy the places where we make our experiences.’

Reinhold Messner
