Interview of one of the great mountaineers-Reinhold Messner
Interesting thoughts expressed here; especially like the idea of innovation, and adjusting goals
My favorite quote from Messner (so far):
“A solo ascent of Everest is really only a solo ascent when there is no connection between ‘above’ and ‘below’, no security link through vigilant ground personnel.”
