The Mountaineer's Prayer

O honourable mountain
Allow me to walk to your peak
There you are, timeless, elegant
Framing the sun, the moon and the stars

With clouds kissing your hem
Allow me to tread quietly
Of the million paths that trellis your being
Let me find the path for me

Wish that I travel well
Not so fast, that I miss your wonders
Neither so slow, that I lose all hope
Let my steps be firm, always pressing onwards

As I climb a narrower mountain
Measuring pace and breath
Bless me with fellow travelers
Who lighten my weary soul

We are on a similar journey
And walk in quiet knowing
We may have come from afar,
But we now companions are

There are many people we pass
Sitting tired by the trail
Some who are just resting
Others who’ve given up hope

As I raise my eyes to the summit
I pray for the strength to walk on
For this climb is my life’s purpose
And stop, I really can’t

For when we scale the summit
We are one with all who reach
The summit doesn’t care how we got there
But unites all who did

After I have jumped with joy
And the moment of elation has passed
Give me the grace, to walk down carefully
And thankfully, help others pass

For when I serve fellow climbers
In reaching your mighty peak
It is the only true thanksgiving
That my soul can give

Mountain climbing (or mountaineering) is a hobby where people climb mountains.[2] It may involve hiking, rock climbing, as well as crossing glaciers. Someone who does mountain climbing is called a mountain climber.

Mountain climbers are sage to use the strength of their arms and legs to climb up mountains. Many mountain climbers use ropes and wear special shoes and safety equipment. Most mountain climbers go up mountains as a hobby or as a recreational activity. A small number of mountain climbers do mountain climbing as an occupation or job. They get paid by outdoor clothing companies or universities to climb up mountains, or they are hired as a guide by recreational mountain climbers.

Climbing mountains can be dangerous; each year, people are seriously injured or even killed from falling, being covered in an avalanche of snow, or getting too cold. To reduce the risks, mountain climbers learn how to climb safely. As well, they wear safety equipment such as helmets and use ropes, compasses, and first aid kits.

Mountain climbers in snowy areas who face the danger of being buried in an avalanche of snow also bring other equipment, such as shovels, radio transmitters, and long poles (for finding people who are buried in the snow) and emergency G.P.S .

Mountaineering is the set of activities that involves ascending mountains. Mountaineering-related activities include traditional outdoor climbing, skiing, and traversing via ferratas. Indoor climbing, sport climbing and bouldering are also considered mountaineering by some.

Unlike most sports, mountaineering lacks widely-applied formal rules, regulations, and governance; mountaineers adhere to a large variety of techniques and philosophies when climbing mountains. Numerous local alpine clubs support mountaineers by hosting resources and social activities. A federation of alpine clubs, the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA), is the International Olympic Committee-recognized world organization for mountaineering and climbing.
