Mourning David Lama, Jess Roskelley, and Hansjörg Auer – Outside Magazine

There is only one person you will have to bear for the rest of your life: yourself. That’s why being alone is so difficult. Even in the mountains, and not just because of safety. Being alone strips you naked, it makes you understand who you are, what is your value, the things that matter in life. This is the story of Hansjörg Auer.
