Alpine Climbing: Quiet Pursuit of the Ridiculous

BY WILL CADELL
@ VOL 1 ON FEB 18, 2014

It doesn’t have to be fun to be fun. It can be the difficulty that defines the experience and the challenges overcome which makes the moments of quiet in the mountain so sublime. Will Cadell explores the Jekyll and Hyde personas of alpine climbers to show that for every Jekyll that complains and wants to quit, there is a Hyde that says, "don't think, keep going."

BY LESYA NIKOLAYEVA
@ VOL 6 ON NOV 01, 2018

In Lesya Nikolayeva's presentation, she would like to share her personal attitude toward the mountains and all the feelings she deals with when she's there. Apart from the ambition to reach the top – and all the dangerous situations that implies – Lesya finds that she faces a wide spectrum of emotions, from the dullness of basic routine to the deeply philosophical and exhilarating. Indeed, most of her thoughts on the mountains are philosophical.
