What's inside your mind?

You're thinking in your next hold?

Or you don't think and your just enjoying it?

By the way, have you been in the zone?

What was for you?

when im climbing, i do kinda go into a zone. unless im pulling a really hard move, im not thinking about the next hold, or move at all. i can barely hear anything, all i can really see is the rock, and i just focus on my current move. its great.

To be honest; When i climb i try to clear my head of every other thought. I focas on keeping an inner calm and i try to enjoy every move i make. When i pull i good more, it just gives me the rush to pull another. So i guess i try to keep a clear head.

I think the word you guys are looking for is Satori.

I hope I spelled it right.

Anyway, satori is a state of mind you are in when focusing to the extreme. Like Nirvana.

NO, not the band.

It is a state of being in the exact moment of your actions.....Those of you who meditates knows what I'm talking about.

I use it when free soloing or walking a slackline.

Cheers, Ammon.

I think:

Hold, hold here, okay, okay, "Stop talking to me for a second, WILL YOU?!!!", reach, get the foot here, reach, foot . . . hold, where's a hold . . .

1. sheesh that hold is small.
2. what's for dinner tonight? mmmm, steak.
3. this is awesome.
4. my belayer is really cute.
5. we (climbers) are definitely some of the priviledged few...

One of the big reasons I go climbing (on the weekends for now) is because I don't have to think. Not about school, girlfriend hassels, money, anything. Just slottin' gear and climbin' cracks and enjoying the weather.

The hardest part of the day is walking down the beer isle and deciding on which beer to drink after the first couple of Guinness's.

That's what I love about climbing!!

TRADitionally yours,

Addiroids

when a climb is hard I'm usually not thinking about anything except how to pull the moves, when it's an easy climb or something I've climbed lots to times I usually just get lost in thought about anything, sex ain't usually one of them tho... I don't think it would be comfortable to get "excited" with a harness on and I don't want to find out either!!!!

As a beginner I find myself thinking..."where's my next hold....where is it!...Dang that's small...There's gotta be another one around here somewhere...Shoot!...Ok...How am I going to get to that one...How can I reach it and still stick to this wall...Dang my arms are tired...I'm so pumped...I love this feeling....getting weaker....losing strength...just one more lunge and I'll get there...Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"...Gotta love climbing and the fall from when you gave it every last ounce of strength with-in you...Gear up and go at it again until you beat the probelm...

I agree that the best part of climbing is not thinking much other than "Where is the next hold?", "How am I going to get there?", and "Man, it's windy up here". There is not much more you have to think about other than how awesome it is outside and how beautiful the sport of climbing is.

For me thinking is a bad thing when i climb it seems to put stress on me. Usually by the end of a pitch or route i am singing free falling by tom petty. Sort of ironic isnt it

I can tell you what I'm not thinking about. Work, bills, and, society. No really I usually get a song in my head and just floww up the rock.

One world at a time, an ancient zen saying that basically means concentrate on the present and forget about the rest of your other worlds, (work, bills, friends, and all that) just live for the moment.......
