Video: Reinhold Messner At Winter OR 2012

Do you have 22 minutes to spare? Want to hear the greatest mountaineer of all time share his thoughts on the Cerro Torre controversy, mixing adventure and conservation, and much more? This video was shot at the Winter Outdoor Retailer convention a few weeks back and was sponsored by the American Alpine Club. It is a rare and wonderful chance to listen to Messner share his thoughts on a variety of topics, and if you know anything about Reinhold, you know he isn’t afraid to share his opinion.

  1. Wow ! What a wonderful, thoughtful, inspiring and provocative experience – many thanks to Phil Powers, the American Alpine Club, Adidas Outdoors, and of course, Messner the Meister –

  2. The third phase of the history of mountaineering is that of "Verzicht", Messner says: It translates not so easily but encompasses these terms, taken from Google Translate:
    waiver
    renunciation
    abandonment
    renouncement
    resignation
    sacrifice
    relinquishment
    abdication
    abnegation
    release
