The first ascent of Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen

Originally shared by Ed Pearce

The first ascent of Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen was completed by Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler on May 8, 1978. It was the first time anyone had been that high without bottled oxygen and Messner and Habeler proved what certain doctors, specialists, and mountaineers thought impossible.
