/ Quotes please for climbing film!
My friend is editing a film she's made about a Slovakian climber - he put up a new route on Trango tower last year. She wants a couple of climbing quotes to put in her film, any ideas? She says "smth either explaining what climbing is or inspirational. and smth about the dangers"
Thanks for your help from an aspiring Russian filmmaker! (not me my friend!)
