  • General Info
Description
Anatoli Nikolaevich Boukreev Russian: ????????? ??????????? ???????? was an ethnic-Russian Kazakhstani mountaineer who made ascents of seven of the fourteen eight-thousander peaks, i.e., peaks above 8,000 m, without supplemental oxygen. From 1989 through 1997, he made 18 successful ascents of peaks above 8000 m. Boukreev had a reputation as an elite mountaineer in international climbing circles, but became more widely known for his role in saving climbers during the deadly 1996 climbing season on Everest. In 1997 Boukreev was killed in an avalanche during a winter ascent of Annapurna in Nepal. Boukreev's companion, Linda Wylie, edited his memoirs and published them in 2002 under the title, Above the Clouds: The Diaries of a High-Altitude Mountaineer.
