Reinhold Messner is the Muhammad Ali of mountaineering: larger than life, outrageously outspoken, and skilled and accomplished enough to back up his arrogance and ego. And, like Ali, his sport has left him with brain damage, due to excessive time spent in the high-altitude death zone.

No one can question Messner's place as the pre-eminent big mountain climber of the 20th century. His most noted feats are being the first to climb all fourteen of the world's 8000-meter peaks, the first to climb Everest without oxygen, and the first to climb Everest solo. However, his legacy will be as the godfather of the alpine-style ascent, rejecting massive expeditions with porters and bottled oxygen while showing that the fast-and-light style could be adopted to any peak on earth.

The climb lists on this site have been entered using records of Messner's climbs from various web sites. The lists are not complete by any means, and there are likely many climbs not listed. Still, they record a very impressive list of ascents, from the hard faces of his native Italian Dolomites up to the giants of the Himalaya. Messner has done the "Seven Summits" and has also trekked across Antarctica.
