Lessons from the Mountains


I love these lessons that Avery Stonich learned while climbing a couloir. Her insight describes what climbing is to a lot of us.

Here are the main lessons from her experience.

Lesson #1: You have to deal with what the mountain gives you.

Lesson #2: Be prepared to not achieve your objective. But don’t give up too soon.

Lesson #3: It’s mind over matter in the mountains.

Lesson #4: It’s really hard to pee on the side of a steep slope wearing a harness—with guys around.

Lesson #5: Mountains bring you into the moment.

Lesson #6: When the going gets tough, your soul starts to sing.

Lesson #7: The thrill of accomplishment makes it all worthwhile.
