climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Doug Scott (b. 1941, Great Britain)

 

In order to climb properly on big peak one must free oneself of fear. This means you must write yourself off before any big climb. You must say to yourself, ‘I may die here.’

Climbing is about pioneering new routes, exploring new ground, facing the unknown. Those hooked on the eight-thousanders will miss all that. They are wasting the best years of their climbing lives.
