If you cannot understand that there is something in a man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. (reflecting on the challenge of climbing Mount McKinley, the highest peak on the North American continent).

— George Leigh Mallory   (1886 - 1924)

English Mountain Climber
