Royal Robbins! - "Ten Climbers Who Rocked America (that you’ve probably never heard of)."

Climber Walter Bonatti

Hermann Buhl (1924–1957). One of the best climbers of all time, he was particularly innovative in applying alpine style to Himalayan climbing. His accomplishments include: First ascent of Nanga Parbat, 8,126 mts (solo and without bottled oxygen). First ascent of Broad Peak, 8,051 mts. Before his successful Nanga Parbat expedition, 31 people had died trying to make the first ascent. Buhl is the only mountaineer to have made the first ascent of an eight-thousander solo.
