Quote of the Day
People talk of a "flow state" of climbing, where they're moving to a rhythm they've uncovered in the rock or snow. I find a similarity when running on a downgrade in the forest. There are rocks and slopes and curves. You're dancing down as if you're performing a ballet.
- Aron Ralston, climber and author
Aron Lee Ralston is an American mountain climber and public speaker. He became widely known in May 2003 when, while canyoneering in Utah, he was forced by an accident to amputate his right arm with a dull knife in order to free himself from a boulder.
The incident is documented in Ralston's autobiography Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and is the subject of the 2010 film 127 Hours.
Those never watch the film, highly recommend to own one copy.
