Conquering the Mont Blanc with Montblanc
Simon Messner was born on 8th November 1990 and is the son of Reinhold Messner. Along with his three sisters, he has been mountaineering since a very young age. Like his father, he shares a passion to preserve the tradition of climbing, taking all necessary measures to protect the mountain environment by using as little equipment as possible and having never used supplemental oxygen on his ventures.
Many different goals can be set while mountaineering, but for Simon, the most important thing is the experience gained. The idea of racing to reach all of the world’s summits is not what drives him the most, it is more about being as close as possible to the mountain in the purest sense.
To underline his respect for mountaineering and the environment, he ascended the Mont Blanc in August 2022, going back to where it all started for Montblanc, with the Montblanc 1858 Geosphere 0 Oxygen LE1786 strapped to his wrist.
