Climbing

I’m not a climber. I’m a snowboarder. I like going downhill. But I got down the climbing rabbit hole on YouTube and found 3 incredible stories. Thanks to GoPro cameras, it’s now much easier to have a feeling of what it’s like to climb the highest summits in the world. I’m amazed at how prepared these athletes are. And how meticulous they are about their gear and the weather. There are a lot of unpredictable variables. And they do everything they can to minimize risks. But most importantly they are driven, almost blindly, by one simple goal : getting to the top.

Obsession has a cost too. And of course, to balance all of that hype, a video about Everest Inc. : the deadly business of bringing unprepared tourists to the tope of Mount Everest.
