Pandemic 2020: Lessons Mountaineering Can Teach Us About Surviving COVID Crisis | Hiking Reflections

As COVID-19 forces us to remain at home, we can’t help but missed hiking the mountains. However, we’ve realized that mountaineering has a lot to teach us about getting through this pandemic. Here’s what mountaineering can teach us about surviving this pandemic: 1 You Can’t Ignore Risk. You Have to Manage It Carefully. In this situation, we all need to practice proper risk management. If we don’t manage our risk, many won’t make it long. 2 When You Can’t See the Summit, Just Keep Going. Uncertainty is everywhere right now, and it’s one of the biggest sources of stress. We just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other. The summit is out there somewhere! 3 The Right Gear Helps Keep You Safe – IF you Know How to Use it. Part of risk management for a mountaineer involves the gear you pack and bring with you. In this pandemic, personal protective equipment, is critical for reducing transmission of the virus. However, as with mountaineering, proper technique is key to making the gear worthwhile. 4 We Take Care of our Own. Practice Compassion. Sacrifice is in our nature as mountaineers, as is compassion for our brothers and sisters on the mountains. We’re asked to practice that same sacrifice and compassion today to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 5. This Isn’t Easy. Then Again, Neither is Mountaineering We’re all struggling right now to make sense of these weird times. However, the lessons from our hiking leave us better prepared to tackle the challenges ahead. We can make it through this crisis. Stay healthy out there, stay safe, and keep the faith. The summit is just out there – see you back in the mountains again soon! He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary. - Friedrich Neitszche “Stay strong, there’s a rainbow after every storm.”
