      About The Book

      This vividly imagined reflection on climbing provides an entirely new perspective on mountaineering. “It is not with skill that I wish to climb Everest,” writes master climber, author, and poet Pat Ament. “I wish to climb it with curiosity and appreciation, with an artist’s love … I want to be sunburned by the dream of life whose more diamond parts lie hidden in the rocks and in us.”Ament’s ten playful keys to climbing Everest all contain the same underlying message — that it is not an important thing to do. For those who believe that reaching the pinnacle of Everest will prove something, he says flatly that mediocre climbers have succeeded where expert climbers have failed. Everest is a metaphor for life, in his view, and life’s power and meaning should be derived from seeking and valuing the sacred and the beautiful rather than from illusions of grandeur and fame.

      Inventive, whimsical, and peppered with hilarious cartoons, “Climbing Everest explores the ways in which physical adventure teaches us how to live our lives, appreciate the miracle of existence, and experience the wonder of life to the fullest.
