You see a mountain the way other people eye up an attractive man or woman. You look at it with longing and a little bit of lust. It's a challenge but it's one you're dying to take on. It's the mountaineering soul you have, and it won't give you any peace until you've conquered every peak. So when you say you'd climb that, you're not just making chit-chat. You're making a promise. You know you'll get there and we'll see you at the top.
