This piece was inspired by my love of the mountains. Ever since I lived in Switzerland, I've loved the mountains and I've always gone back there every few years. I had been reading a lot of books at that time, including one about climbing Mount Everest. The lengths a person has to go through to achieve the goal of climbing Everest are incredible. It takes months of acclimatization, and then in mountaineering terms there's always the "summit day", the culmination of months of preparation and training. I had the idea to write a tune on the guitar about that.
