"As A Way....."
"Walter Bonatti came to see climbing not so much as a conquest of peaks, as a conquest of oneself. For him, extreme alpinism served as a path to self-knowledge, a means of growth and renewal through contact with nature, and as a way of maintaining balance and sanity in a society growing excessively complex and complacent...".
