Gaston Rébuffat said it perfectly. In Starlight and Storm, he wrote:
“People have a fixed idea of what a guide is: a professional, who, in return for a certain sum of money, takes you to the summit to which you aspire. But, the guide is more than that: (s)he is a competent friend who controls the party, but who also teaches you and stimulates your interest… The choice of companion is as important as the choice of the climb.”
