40 Climbing Lessons

I just read the article linked on Mountain Project's homepage: "40 Climbing Lessons", which was written by Mark Anderson. It is one of those rare things I read on the Internet that really struck a chord with me. It is more than just an article on training, it seems to be a list of lessons covering a little bit of everything in climbing that Mark has learned over the years. I've learned some of the same lessons myself, especially the last one: there's more to life than rock climbing. I became a father a little more than 3 years ago, and that really opened my eyes to a life outside of climbing.

Since the MP community is such a diverse group of people, I don't think we will all agree with the 40 lessons. But I still think it's a good read for everyone, whether you agree with Mark or not. Here's the link to the article again.

Of course there is more to life than climbing we all die at some point (and taxes of course).
