Waves of climbers have reached the summit of Everest this past week. It is heartening to see so many climbers reach their goal. Without minimizing any individual accomplishment it is really a feat of the human spirit and gumption that the summit is being reached by hundreds of people.
As a Canadian it has been inspiring to see Al Hancock from Alberta summit and also Meagan McGrath summit.
There have been a number of rescues on the mountain and unfortunately a few climbers have also lost their lives. My hope is that with so many summits it encourages all of us to have the gumption, tenacity, and spirit to reach our personal and leadership summits while also staying connected with others and doing all we can to help others.
To me the Brotherhood of the Rope is all about relationships and results!
