So this is why 'Climb one of the World's Seven Summits' is on my bucket list. I've never actually been outdoor climbing (why have I not done this yet, I don't know). However, every single time I go camping in the mountains, I look up at the peaks and try an imagine what it would be like to stand at the very top. In my life, I have hiked up a whole bunch of mountains - in the Rocky Mountains, in Quebec, etc) but I have never had the opportunity to fully train to climb one of the world's seven summits.
Also, although I know it's dangerous and incredibly difficult, I would love to be able to climb the steep rock faces that require the use of a rope and harness at all times. Like this.
Looks dangerous, doesn't it? But that view is so breathtaking that it would be all worth it and the danger is kind of what makes it so intriguing.
I know that it would takes years to train for something as intense as climbing a rock face and camping on the side of it, but who knows where my life is going to take me? Maybe in a few years I'll realize that what I really want to do with my life is become a climber, or a camping guide. Then maybe I'll get an opportunity to climb a mountain summit.
But no matter what I study in university, I know that in the summers I'll do everything I can to ensure that I can go camping at least twice. Being in the outdoors is definitely a passion of mine and I can't help but plan big trips for my future (I'm determined to make at least one of them a reality). So, I'll keep hoping, camping and planning until the time comes for this adventure to finally take place!
