- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

I want to say "B" because of the name of the jpeg.

As it's French (consonants-optional), I'd say "ee-BLO" with a short O on the end, then take a sip of red wine followed by a puff on my seee-garr-eh.
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:
