Climbers like Jon Krakauer had to dig deep within themselves to find strength they didn't even know they had.

"Getting to the top of any given mountain was considered much less important than how one got there: prestige was earned by tackling the most unforgiving routes with minimal equipment, in the boldest style imaginable"(20).
