When Expertise Matters

“Doing a route at the absolute limit of the possible demands and encourages a coordination of all peripheral factors. It is, at the same time, a sign of joy and contentment with that moment, perhaps even a mirror of the equilibrium in your inner spirit, a mirror of a liberated state of mind.”
– Wolfgang Güllich
