More Info:
I love rock-climbing. Really. I'm no sports fanatic - as anyone who knows me can attest, I am far from it. But from the first day I stepped into a harness and looked up at the rock, I fell in love with climbing. And you know what got me? The control. I love that climbing is a mix of physical tasks, intelligence, skill and intuition. It is chess; every move has to be worked out in terms of effort, balance and consequence. Climbing is thinking with your body. It is physically challenging, but also mentally engaging. It's puzzle solving. "The Big Concept: Climbing is a movement sport, not a strength sport. The best climbers are good at climbing; strength matters far less than the combination of the climber’s motion skills, attitude and mind. The best way to become a better climber is develop better movement; strength will develop specifically for climbing movement as fast as it is needed. Most climbs are combinations of movements; the better the climber is at those movements, the better he or she will climb the route. Strength is not even secondary, it’s about last on the list of needed skills." — Will Gadd
