Recently, we had the second training session for our Soldiers To Summits Cotopaxi program. What makes this so remarkable—and difficult— is that we aren’t just trying to achieve a mountain climbing adventure. I don’t want to pour my heart and energy into just helping people learn how to climb mountains.
In itself, climbing mountains doesn’t help you change your life. You can stand on a summit and you’ve achieved something but it doesn’t mean that you’ve learned anything about life off the mountain. For S2S, climbing isn’t an end but a means to better things.
