This is what the Internet is for, right? How wonderful that we can witness this couples’ derring-do without having to get on a mountain ourselves. That we can feel connected to the vast tapestry of humanity and all of Earth’s sights while assuring ourselves that, if anyone is going to break a bone doing it, it sure won’t be us. Bask in the bravery of this beautiful, adventurous couple and see what your life could be, then pull up Netflix.

Or maybe they’re just really good at Photoshop.
