If you don't have goals, you don't have fulfillment
Joyce Park stashed this in Goals!
Incredibly inspiring story about a guy with cerebral palsy who climbed El Capitan. I loved what he said about why he loved the outdoors: because then you find your REAL limitations, not those put on you by others.
That's... amazing... and utterly torturous:
"It was six days of just absolute torture and I would say awe-inspiring too," Wampler said.
"The pure exhaustion of six to eight hours of constant pull-up after pull-up after pull-up and the bright sunshine and the heat," Wampler said. "The whole adventure was, was just unbelievable."
Another inspirational climbing story: Alex Honnold's Triple:
Dubbed the triple, the task would mean scaling the sheer walls of Mount Watkins, El Capitan and Half Dome for a total of about 7,000 vertical feet of rock. For all but about 500 feet of it, Honnold planned to climb with no ropes or safety equipment at all.
