My inspiration for climbing

I've read tons of climbing books. Everything from kids climbing Everest to stories of the earliest climbers. By far, the book that's inspired me the most is Seven Summits, the story of Dick Bass and Frank Wells and their efforts to be the first to climb the highest peak on each continent. I just re-read the book again and its still inspirational. It's what's led me to climb. If you haven't read it I suggest you do.

Thanks for sharing your post. Hiking and Mountain Climbing is very adventurous. You will see your capability and stamina. Many Travellers love this kind of activity but there are risk and sometimes it is dangerous so a full time mountain climber have their own travel insurance for unexpected scenario.
