That's what she said.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

The jump at ~1:49 is supersick.

Secretly jealous. Wish I could dance like that.

How come at 14k, I can barely put one foot in front of the other... and these dang kiddos are doing backflips and such. Bunch of whippersnappers.
