"Mountaineer Dave Hahn has stood on top of the world 15 times — more than any non-Sherpa climber. But after 30 years as a guide, attaining the summit of Mt. Everest is no longer the driving force behind Hahn’s adventures. He recalls President Teddy Roosevelt’s words that "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena … who strives valiantly … who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…” Hahn understands that the heart of mountain climbing is about the journey, not the destination."
