Leaving something of yourself behind!

A man does not climb a mountain without bringing some of it away with him, and leaving something of himself upon it.” – Sir Martin Conway

I’m off to the The Royal Institute of Great Britain tonight to listen to a talk from Corey Richards describing what it felt like to summit Pakistan’s Gasherbrum II in winter.

While researching some background to the talk I came across this incredible photograph of Cory while online which ties in very nicely with the essence of my today’s quote choice, without the need for words it clearly tells us that Cory for sure is a man who definitely left something of himself behind on Gasherbrum II during his brief but dangerous liaison with it!
