Because it is my "high". Stimulates dopamine ad seratonin production. Helps with depression, anxiety and is overall a very healthy thing to do. I am healthier now at 40 than I was when I was 19. I can do a one arm and win bets at parties, while most others are abdominly obese and stoned. It helps me stay focused in life. Its something I can do with my wife that we are both pationate about. Its something I can do with my future son/daughter. I can put a cool "Petzl" sticker on the back of my Toyota and not be a pozer! :) It allows for travel to really cool places and to meat other people who are generally down to earth and very healthy. Compared to bars where "other" sports meet. The Crags and campsite pints are far more enjoyable. Need I say anymore... I could go on and on! Cool

One more thing!
life insurance in case of accidental death of your beloved! Pirate

I climb because friends ask me to then I say yes and I hate flaking.

You have made a solid point about the risks and embracing it as such.

I climb so that I can see the same view of the mountain from where the Golden eagle sits.
I climb because I feel more in touch with the rawness of mother nature.
I climb because it makes me smile.
