Overcoming limitations and succeeding in climbing the mountain. This is what we think of when we talk about free climbing. But does the art of climbing really only come down to this? It’s impossible to capture its beauty without also mentioning harmony, passion and control of emotions.

It is not only a matter of physical strength, but also a mental exercise to overcome one’s limits and succeed in combatting any insecurities you carry within. This is why free climbing deserves to appear on the list of the world’s most extreme adrenaline sports.
