Mountin Quotes (1 quote)
There are three elements of mountaineeringdifficulty, danger, and exposure. Difficulty is the technical aspect of it. Danger, it is best to avoid, but some people like to increase danger to a point where their success is dependent only on luck. And exposure, which is what truly defines Alpinism, is what you face in wild nature. Its the weather, the cold, the oxygen, the storms, the avalanches and rock falls, rain and snow. Its the exposure that determines how you will move, it tells you that one wrong step means death. Exposure means no help is coming from outside, its you and the mountain.
