Reinhold Messner is perhaps the great mountaineer to ever live. His resume is practically unmatched. He was the first man to climb Everest without oxygen, the first to top out on all 8000m peaks, and he’s put up new routes on some of the most challenging peaks all over the world. If that wasn’t enough, he’s also crossed the Antarctic, and more than 2000 miles of the Gobi Desert.
In their Friday Matinee today, Outdoors Magic has posted a nice interview with Messner, who talks about his approach to climbing, young climbers that he respects, and more. Definitely a cool video of a true living legend.
