Making the first ascent of the third highest peak in the Bernese Alps on August 3, 1811 isn’t exactly a Stanley Cup three-peat.
It might feel more like that infamous Monopoly thing where you win second prize in a beauty contest and get ten bucks.
But in fact, to have made it up an uncharted peak with a random group of servants, guides, and hunters wearing wool jackets and leather shoes is a triumph of the human spirit.
We can’t all be Sir Edmund Hillary. But we can all reach peaks in our personal lives.
