Every hiker is called to the trail for a different reason, but we all share a common goal: We all want to finish.

What kind of trail starts at the top of a mountain?

so cool

The hallowing of Pain
Like hallowing of Heaven,
Obtains at a corporeal cost—
The Summit is not given
To Him who strives severe
At middle of the Hill—
But He who has achieved the Top—
All—is the price of All—


What’s the reward?

the price of All
