This photo needs no words.. their faces say it all!
However below is a favourite quote of Danny’s which perhaps answers the question: why would anyone choose to take on such a punishing and demanding endeavour!?
“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.” ~ René Daumal
