Why do we rock climb?
If you rock climb for any substantial amount of time, you will inevitably run into someone who just doesn’t understand why you do it. For many people, the idea of rock climbing is so foreign to them that they will be forced to ask you stupid and infuriating questions.
These questions range from the mildly annoying “How high have you gone?” to the slit my wrists level of infuriating “When are you going to climb Everest? “ Ha..ha..ha…….
Stupid questions aside, most people truly do not understand why we would seemingly put ourselves in danger to rock climb. What they don’t understand is that this is a very complex question. There are SO many reasons to rock climb, and everyone does it for a different reason.
Have no fear my friends, for I have created a solution to our problem. Through years of research I have developed a fool proof flow chart that will help explain to your gravitationally challenged friends and family exactly why you rock climb.
This flow chart is scientifically proven to work! If it is not accurate, you are lying to yourself!
