Ed Viesturs mountaineer. The only American to have climbed all fourteen of the worlds meter peaks, and only the sixth to do so without supplemental oxygen. What an amazingly inspirational man. My hero.
Emilio Comici In the early 1900s, Italian Comici invented multi-step aid ladders, solid belays, the use of a trail/tag line, and hanging bivouacs, pretty much the beginning of modern big-wall climbing techniques, using them to climb the 3,500-foot northwest face of the Civetta in 1931.
