Years ago, before knowledge, training and equipment made climbing Everest more achievable, a famous mountaineer was asked why he'd risked his life to conquer the mountain. He replied 'because it was there'. Although we can't be sure he said it, the phrase has gone down in history. Interestingly, he didn't say that 'he had no choice'. Or that he'd have looked ridiculous if he hadn't been successful. As the Moon grows full, and we approach the Equinox, celebrate what you want to do. You can climb high.
