Why should someone, who is afraid of heights, go climbing and mountaineering? Well, as my friend and partner Simon (who is to blame for me going climbing and mountaineering with him) puts it: "It would be more sensible to stay on the ground, for sure. But you would never get to see what's up there". Nothing brings me THAT fast to my physical and mental borders. And nothing gives me that much freedom and joy than being in the mountains.
