Wanda Rutkiewicz (one of the best- if not the best- female climbers).
Anatolij Bukrieev (mentioned above)

It seems there is mistake in your profile of Rheinhold Messner. He is claimed to have been "the first to climb the seven summits", which is a title for Pat Morrow. Here is a link of where you can find the info:

Welshman Eric Jones, who has climbed the North Face of Eiger twice (Heckmeir Route)should, I believe, be included in your list of famous climbers. His first ascent was the first ascent of the Eiger to be filmed in, I believe, 1969. His second ascent was solo (1981?)once again, captured on film (Eiger Solo). Eric also made a rare solo ascent of the Bonatti Pillar on the Petit Dru.

Hi Jeroen, nice page! Messner did the first 8,000er completely solo from base camp to summit and back (Nanga Parbat), and did arguably the first 8,000er in perfect alpine style (Gasherbrum 1 with Habeler), but Messner was not the first to climb an 8,000er without supplemental oxygen. Its a common misconception which Messner mentions himself in at least one of his books. Several 8,000er summits were reached in the 50's without oxygen. Buhl reached the summit of Nanga Parbat without it, Cho Oyu was climbed completely without it, etc.

Voted 9/10

I'm struck by how few words you have to say about Jerzy Kukuczka. Among other things climbing the 14 in anything but the easiest way: nine new routes (some say eleven), one solo summit, four in alpine style, and four during the winter. Among climbers his legend is almost as great as Messner (meaning that for quite a few he is the "greatest climber of all time").

Another climber of exceptional ability. In 2009 completed his 14 peaks "the hard way" including new alpine routes and winter ascents. Some call him the best high altitude climber of his generation.

This amazing "mountain goat" is a superb alpinist and the FASTEST right now. Currently he is trying to speed-climb the 8000s, including Everest. Ueli has already broken speed records in the major North faces in the Alps. Definitely, he is one of the best!
