More information:
I believe climbing is more of a lifestyle than hobby, for me at least. If it doesn't involve rocks or mountains I don't want to do it. My family thinks I am crazy for spending so much time "clinging to rocks" as they put it, but unless you have climbed it can't be described.

"On this proud and beautiful mountain we have lived hours of fraternal, warm and exalting nobility. Here for a few days we have ceased to be slaves and have really been men. It is hard to return to servitude." - Lionel Terray
