Just over 3 months ago, a few of us got together and planned for 50 on Kinabalu. Although the team could read about the tough conditions, the weeks of training and hundreds of WhatsApp messages prior to the climb could only prepare them for the pain and endurance needed.
What they couldn’t prepare for was the discovery of themselves. Every climber discovered something of themselves that will be remembered forever. It’s not about reaching the summit. It's about the next 5 more minutes - the journey matters much more than the destination.
