Sunday Sermon

“What advantages do we hope to gain? Naturally, there is the pleasure we get from the climbing process itself and from out victories, but as well as the delights of exercise in a mountain environment, there is also the process, coming every time as a surprise, of self-discovery, deepening a little further with every climb: who we are, how far we can go, what is our potential, where are the limits of our technique, our strength, our skills, our mountaineering sense: discoveries whose acceptance means that, if necessary, we may turn back and return another time, several times if need be-‘Tomorrow is new day.'”
