There is something special in the bond shared between alpine climbing partners. When you’re alone on a mountain and being tested and pushed and forced to rely on each other, the emotional strain can break even the closest friendships. But there’s nothing more motivating than watching my climbing partners rise to a challenge, push their limits and take extra risk so we can succeed. When all the members of a team contribute and take their chances to reach a combined goal, it builds confidence and trust that can be drawn on at a later date.
