A Little About Me

The reasons people climb are diverse, ranging from a simple satisfaction at physical exercise to a single minded need to find ever harder and more punishing problems to solve. The central theme is one of testing the self to a greater or lesser extent at whatever level of the game we choose to play it. In the sense that it is unnecessary to play this game at all, climbing is a useless activity; in the context of discovering oneself, testing the limits of one's ability, exploring the boundaries of fear, determination and endurance, climbing is a means of self fufillment and a source of great satisfaction. The other delights of climbing as a way of life, the enjoyment of an outdoor environment, the simplicity of expedition life, the pleasure at being physically completely fit, are all bonuses beside this central theme.
