Kel Rossiter in The Seattle Times: In mountain climbing, as in life, preparation trumps optimism:

"Climbing season on Rainier is under way, and with it comes the flock of would-be summiteers exhorting the cult-of-positive-thinking mantra, “Mind over matter!” This phrase belies an alluring but woefully misguided idea that simple faith in an outcome leads to its actualization, an idea so pervasive in our culture that it shouldn’t be surprising it has also permeated the climbing community."
