Fuck SW, a one trick pony ain't elite, oh wait I guess its more like climbing than I thought
Climbing is more like snowboarding than any other olympic sport. You get good by being a dirtbag, riding(climbing) as much as you possibly can, and you make movies in your free time while doing stupid shit. Beans right out of the can is considered a good meal, and bowl or two never hurt anyone either
So which one is making $10M/year like Shaun White?
I believe a climber could also loose a metal for weed, though.
In snowboarding you keep your shirt on while wearing a beanie, though. Actually the more I think about it, the less alike.
