Messner is the King of the Mountains,
This review is from: K2: Mountain of Mountains (Hardcover)Hail to the king of the mountaineers! Read about Messner's climb of K2 without oxygen - an amazing feat even for today's best-conditioned climbers. I'm continually amazed of Reinhold's incredible fitness and knack for survival. He survived so many adventures in some of the world's toughest places. Lance Armstrong is a super human cyclist, and Reinhold Messner is a super human mountaineer. The greatest thing about his success is that he survived all of his epic climbs. It is a 3-4 star book, but a 5-plus star adventure.
For another book with tales of adventure on a more "recreational" scale, try "Rocky Mountain Adventure Collection."
