Reinhold is the author of dozens of books about his adventures.
Notes from Reinhold Messner keynote address 4-6-24 Mountaineers Gala event in Seattle:
“…Mountaineering for me is a cultural issue and not only a sportive issue. Mountaineering…in my way has 3 dimensions: a spiritual dimension, a psychical dimension, and a physical dimension. And all of these are very important….I like infinite space, absolute silence, and the possibility to be on my own…and specially to be responsible…
“If we overcome our fears in wild places, we can know who we are.”
“I’m an adventurer. Wildness is our holy ground. We should defend it with all our possibilities.”
