Everest by fair means – that is the human dimension, and that is what interests me … In reaching for the oxygen cylinder, a climber degrades Everest … a climber who doesn't rely on his own strength and skills, but on apparatus and drugs, deceives himself.' In May 1978 Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler became the first climbers in history to reach the summit of Mount Everest without the use of supplementary oxygen – an event which made international headlines and permanently altered the future of mountaineering. In Everest: Expedition to the Ultimate, Messner tells how they accomplished the im
The second death of George Mallory : the enigma and spirit of Mount Everest by Reinhold Messner( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a boy, climbing legend Reinhold Messner was inspired by another legend: George Mallory's tragic final ascent of Mount Everest in 1924. To Messner, and to thousands of others, Mallory's attempt--whether or not it succeeded--remains the greatest exploit in the annals of mountain climbing. Though Mallory's body was finally found, we have lost, Messner believes, the spirit that guided him; summiting Everest has become merely a corporate challenge and a matter of technology, not a rendezvous with destiny. Using the British climber's journals and letters, Messner thrillingly re-creates Mallory's three assaults on Everest, including his final ascent. Here is both an investigation into the death of George Mallory and a deeply felt homage--to a mountain, to the spirit of an age, and to the man who inspired those who followed in his footsteps

Keep Moving is an artist's book that Hamish Fulton, the British "walking artist," conceived for MUSEION-Museum of Modern and Contemporary art in Bolzano. At the core of Fulton's art are the experiences he accumulates during his walks: the exploration of self and the encounter with nature become one and the same. Fulton's works, in the form of photography and pictograme he combines with texts, are the distillation of these walks. Keep Moving is the result of eight days spent in the Corvara region of the Dolomites in the summer of 2004, during which the artist went on eight day-long walks and a guided climb, using a small mountain hut as his base. Deeply influenced by legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner, in 2001 Hamish Fulton and Messner hiked together along the trail at the 5,000-year old iceman Otzi. (Back cover)
