Whether you call it mountaineering or even Alpinism, mountain climbing is one of the most dangerous sports in the world.
Avid mountain climbers don’t climb to finish first or in some sort of style; instead, they do it for the experience and the sense of accomplishment. From small mountains to the great Mount Everest and all of those in between, mountain climbers travel the world to find their next big adventure.

But, what exactly is so dangerous about mountain climbing?

Climbers often face varying conditions from climbing far above sea level, sometimes almost straight up, to climbing through rough conditions like snow and ice. Because of this, dangers of injury and death run high as even experts attempt to meander their way around mountain death traps that include avalanches, earthquakes, ice storms and even flash floods. With the statistics not in our favor, it’s safe to say that we won’t be gearing up for Everest anytime soon!
