    “The hardship made me challenge the seemingly impossible. I overcame the handicap a mountain gave me by climbing mountains.”

    कठिनाई ने मुझे असंभव प्रतीत होने वाली चुनौती दी। मैं एक पहाड़ पर चढ़ने से मुझे दी गई बाधा को काबू करता हूं। “

    “अडचणीमुळे मला अशक्य वाटते. डोंगरावर चढून मला माउंटनने दिलेल्या अपघातावर मी विजय मिळविला. “

    Kim Hong-bin, 54

    1991
    In 1991, Kim Hong-bin had suffered severe frostbite on the 6190-meter-high Denali in Alaska, the highest mountain of North America. All ten fingers had to be amputated.

    “If the accident at Denali hadn’t happened, I would have remained an ordinary climber,” Hong-bin once said. “The hardship made me challenge the seemingly impossible. I overcame the handicap a mountain gave me by climbing mountains.”
