Jerzy Kukuczka: Greatest Polish Alpinist Tribute.

Jerzy ‘Jurek’ Kukuczka, the famous Polish climber, has entered mountaineering history as ‘the second man to conquer all 14, 8000ers” after Reinhold Messner, lost on Lhotse in 1989.

There have been a lot of rivalries surrounding Everest over the years, some so subtle they went unnoticed, some so blatant they erupted into a full-fledged battle-of-wills at base camp. Few however endured as long or seemed as heroic as the battle between Jerzy “Jurek” Kukuc zka and Reinhold Messner during the early 80s. Both men were attempting to be the first climber to summit all 14 peaks in the world over 8,000 meters.

While Messner would finish a year ahead of Kukuczka, it would take Messner 16 years to complete this feat compared to only 8 for Kukuczka.
