Mountaineering Life

Mountaineering takes life and distills it to its most simple. I remember reading a quote from Lydia Brady, the first woman to climb Everest without oxygen. She said that she loves mountaineering for its intensity, sometimes intensely boring, sometimes intensely challenging, and sometimes intensely rewarding. That quote has always stuck with me; and even when I’m cold, tired and hungry, I treasure the feeling of really being alive and having no feeling of ambivalence about what I’m doing.

Every expedition pushes me; there are long days, extreme weather conditions, heavy backpacks, and the constant push to keep going. But digging down and overcoming these challenges brings tremendous satisfaction and pride. And it’s this mental fortitude to keep pushing yourself that allows you to accomplish your goals and experience those incredible, indescribable moments.

In addition to tenacity, mountaineers know the importance of developing strong technical skills and learning to thrive when facing the unexpected. Figuring out a new route on a peak, managing a group in difficult terrain; these things keep the mountains interesting, keep me on my toes. I love the problems solving side of mountaineering. There is always something new to think about everyday.

At times it was hard, very hard... But the expedition, while pushing each of us to the edge, was nothing but a positive, amazing experience.

Mountaineering will challenge you in a thousand ways. You have to know a lot: how to set anchors, how to read a map, how to look after your team-mates. You have to do a lot: carry a pack, haul a sled, dig out a snow camp. You have to persevere: keep walking, keep digging, keep struggling, keep smiling, keep going, never stop…

For those of you looking for life at its most intense, to challenge yourself and to learn to reach the summit, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the ultimate classroom.
