Mountaineering and Gravity
Gravity stylizes the space of the climbers, coordinates it, making the vertical dimension more essential than the horizontal one. It also orients their body, "polarizes" it, because one does not feel one's weight in the same way depending on whether one's feet are placed on some hold offered by the wall or whether one is suspended in the void by the hands. And it also curves their vocabulary. What does mountaineering tell us about gravitation?
