This is by far one the most asked questions: Why do you climb? There no single answer to this question. I climb for a multitude of reasons. One for sure is because I like it. In the mountains I feel myself good, free, at ease, relaxed. Of course I climb to reach the summit but that's not the main goal. I climb to discover, to travel. I climb to test myself, to see how far I can go, it's a challenge. Climbing is making friends and trusting each other. Climbing is so much.
Do I ever yhink about the dangers? Of course I do, every climber should, but they don't scare me. A lot can be avoided by taking precautions, but as always shit can happen, that's life but we all hope it doesn't. Mountains are still a beautifull but wild and hostile environment. We all die one day but I' d rather die there then at home in bed.
