Watching this documentary reminded me of why I love to climb so much.
The sport has taken me to places of incredible beauty.
I love the challenge it always presents.
It has taught me how to rid my life of negative thoughts. Summiting is an incredible feeling of accomplishment.
But the main reason I love climbing is the memories. Every climb is totally different. Each offers a different challenge. And each makes you unbelievably grateful for the beauty of God's creation.
Climbing mountains is the ultimate ego-killer. You simply cannot think you are greater than the mountain. Climbing is a reality check that keeps you looking at life in proper perspective. The higher the climb, the smaller you are.
