I received my latest issue of National Geographic last week, and finally had a chance to read it some while I was away. The one article that stood out to me the most was entitled Murdering The Impossible and details the life and challenges of Reinhold Messner, perhaps the greatest mountaineer to ever live. It’s an excellent article about a legendary figure in the climbing community, and discusses his triumphs and tragedies. He’s a fascinating man who has accomplished just about everything possible on a mountain. I’d highly, highly recommend that you pick up this issue if you don’t already have a subscription of your own. Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite in the meantime.
