Climb a Mountain

Sculpts Your Body

A mountain expedition will put you in the best shape of your life. Ideally, you’d start training at 6-9 months before your climb. Having a clear reason to work out is a powerful motivator. Focusing your mind on your looming mission will keep you consistent. The training will likely put you in great shape. And then, there’s the climb. Your body will be consuming itself as the harsh conditions force you to burn to more calories than you can eat. You’ll be hard, strong, and incredibly ripped after a climb. Call it “the Mountaineering Cut.”

Introspection

Feeling low? Bored? Suicidal? Unmotivated? You may just need a reminder of your mortality. A controlled brush with death. Peering into the maw of an icy black abyss will make you see your life differently. You’re in real physical danger in the mountains. Facing that WILL make you appreciate your limited time.

Spiritual Growth

God stays in the mountains. If you’re a religious man, the intensity of your climb may cause spiritual revelations. Perhaps even epiphanies. Like Moses. If you’re not one of the Faithful? Well, you’ll still revel in nature’s glory. Because science.

Humility

The mountains make you humble. Despite your training and struggling, your goal may elude you. Contemplate your miniscule existence. Accept that you’re not a special snowflake. Just an insignificant speck of meaningless dust, floating along on an infinite white river of stars. And your clock is ticking.

Test Your Limits

Ascent will push you to the absolute limit. Mountaineering isn’t fun. Really, it’s the opposite. You’ll suffer as you face exhaustion, cold, snow, ice, altitude sickness, low oxygen, avalanche, falls, and countless other dangers. But your climb will harden you, physically AND mentally. It’s a true test of your ability to absorb and endure punishment.
