Artist's Description

At 8,611 metres in elevation <br> it stature towers over man <br> but the desire to conquer it is strong <br> avalanches tumble down frequently <br> flash blizzards <br> blinding sun <br> hot and cold <br> frost bite <br> thin air <br> days covered in your own sweat <br> why climb? <br> because it is there <br> nothing matters when you climb <br> you think about a hundred different things <br> you think about the accomplishment in life <br> the failures <br> love <br> regrets <br> fear <br> joy <br> you go mad <br> you starve <br> but you have a focus <br> to past your own expectations <br> of your mind and your body <br> you find a thousand reasons to go back down <br> but few to keep going <br> i am glad to have a chance on it <br> and i am glad i chose to go back down for the safety of my comrades <br> if i was alone i would have assaulted through the avalanches <br> past the dead russian expedition to reach it <br> maybe next time… <br> <br>
