There has been an explosion of climbing films documenting the stunning accomplishments of individuals in the mountaineering world. This niche subject has inspired a wider audience because of the sheer bravery and razor sharp determination of some of these heroes, both as climbers and human beings.

The spirit of alpinism lives strong in those climbers at the forefront of what some consider an art. You don't have to be a climber to embrace the alpinist spirit though.

What we can learn and embrace:

๐๐ž ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ข๐ง: you will only conquer your passions by being fully present and committed.
๐ˆ๐ญ'๐ฌ ๐š๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ: you're in a competition with yourself, besting yourself each time, it doesn't matter what others think.

But the ones who really count will let you be free to explore your world how you need to, and they will feel your joys and disappointments with you. And they will cheer you on.
๐‹๐ข๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ฃ๐จ๐ฒ: understand that life is a fragile thing, and so we should make it the most joyous celebration.

That's the power of the alpinist spirit. Always reach your highest heights and push to conquer your dreams.
