Interview with Jim Davidson: Resilience in the Mountains; Resilience in Life
Climbing the 14,400 foot Mount Rainier is no easy feat. Spending three days climbing the mountain, falling 80 feet into a crevasse on the descent, and having your partner tragically die beside you while in the crevasse, with no hope for help is another experience altogether. But this is the hand that Jim Davidson was dealt, and he had to make a choice: climb the frozen, overhanging walls of the crevasse, or die trying.
Earlier this year we interviewed Jim about his new book "The Ledge" which can be viewed here.
Climb For Change was fortunate enough to catch up with Jim at the Banff Mountain Festival, and chat about Jim's experience, his thoughts on what it means to be resilient, and his advice to others who may feel they are looking up from the bottom of their own 'crevasse'.
