Inspired by this next words that were brought to my attention by Mário Pulquério…
“Andy Kirkpatrick said it best when he said something about how climbing is
totally pointless; the point in it is to end up exactly where you are stood at
the start via the hardest possible route. In any other sport or, indeed, life
venture, this would be seen as complete stupidity.”
I say this:
As time goes by, it becomes clearer and clearer that climbing is all about me (us climbers) being happy and no one and nothing else (at best, sometimes it can be entertaining for other who see us…). It feels great, but imagine we all only climbed… beside the point that it is not sustainable, it would be absolutely egocentric and without any real contribution to the world we live in… what a wasted existence!
