A Tip 'o the Hat...

...goes to Joe Stirt,for passing along this interview of mountaineering legend Ed Viesturs by author Kathryn Schulz. It's well worth the read, especially the part where he describes his biggest mistake. I won't spoil it for you, but Schulz tells him the mistake doesn't sound so bad. "You made it down safely, after all."

"Yeah," says Viesturs, "but a mistake is a mistake even if you get away with it."

I couldn't have put it better.
