Why Climb mount Everest?

“There’s something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it. The struggle is the struggle of life itself. Upward and forever upward. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life.”

― George Mallory
