what for you is mountaineering?

by emmieuk » Sun Sep 19, 2010 11:54 am

I was in the pub last night discussing climbing with some non climbers when I got asked 'when does hill and mountain walking become mountaineering?' Then I realised I really didn't know and the magazines and internet stuff I read defines mountaineering in all sorts of ways. So my dumb ass question is when for you does it become mountaineering? X x thank youuu

It's "mountaineering" when you want to brag about whatever you did.

It's like beachtaineering.

You pack a lunch, dress up propertly, buy the proper safety equipment and try not to drown while you're down there.

It might be fun, you know.

Mountaineering, that's what you do on a mountain.
Climb, hike.
To me, the image I see in my mind is being on bigger mountain, with snow on top and wild environments.
