As we leave a narrow ledge, we cross a metal and wood bridge over the Animas again. It looks to be very old and sends some creaking wooden joint protests. We are, now again, near the bottom of the valley, where the trepidation subsides and the ominous mountains no longer hold us as tightly in their bosom, but guard our flanks and display their majesty. Mt. Garfield remains glaring menacingly towards us interlopers stepping around its feet even while the sun brightens up the rest of this magnificent world. Here and there are glistening sun sparkles from the drops left behind after the last rainfall. Then it past a hundred year old hydroelectric power plant still in operation. I see numerous portals of forsaken mines, where a hundred years ago, with picks and dynamite, men broke their backs seeking shiny metals, but more often found rheumatism and disappointing failure.On K2 in 2004, we arrived to the summit very late in the afternoon and had many problems on the way down. We spent 24 hours above 8,000 meters, which can be deadly. And last year, descending Kanchenjunga, I got to a point where I told the rest of my team that I couldn't go on, that they should leave me behind. For me, it was egotism, puro y duro ("pure and hard"). Of course I didn't want them to leave me, so it was a way of telling them I was in trouble without necessarily saying it. I had a coach to help me prepare my mind for that. For me, my motivation wasn't to be the first, but to finish my project, my dream, because I had started it. These ten years were not easy for me. I had many personal problems. I had a big depression during 2005 and 2006 and I think that it was the worst moment in my life. On the 17th of May [2010], I finished my challenge. For me this is the most important thing. If I am the first or the second it is not important for me. Maybe I can stay in the history books, but my real life will not change with this. Many times, in the bad moments in my depression, in moments on the mountain when didn't think I would make it, I didn't think about how many peaks I had climbed. The important thing is knowing oneself. If Miss Oh did Kangchenjunga, yes or no, is not an important problem in my life. What is important is to be honest and humble.Cheap Hot Online Sale,100% Quality,Up To 50% Off
