  Indoor Rock Climbing Tips



Why Climb a Mountain? It’s not just because it’s there, it’s more about having that inner desire to explore. And not just to explore the earths physical aspects, but also to explore and experience one’s personal limits and abilities, a feeling you can’t imitate in everyday living. Then to add to that, being able to overcome some of Mother Nature’s ultimate power is exhilarating, but not just for the achievement and glory, but to show respect for mother earth and to express one’s total admiration for her strength, and that you will always appreciate the opportunity to have experienced, and temporarily overcome, just some of her greatness. And in return we see greatness in ourselves.
(Howard Polley)        Adventure Sayings and Quotes about Adventure       Why?

Why do I Climb? For the Experience, for the Adventure, for the Challenge, for the Knowledge, to Measure Myself, to Teach Others, to Inspire Others. The peak is not the the finish line, it is the beginning. Though the peak is the goal, we know it is not the peak of our life. And the moments that define us are not about our accomplishments, but it's how we live our life in between our moments of accomplishments. bragging about what you did does not define you. 

Two weeks in the mountains can change your blood for months
AltitudeOmics: the integrative physiology of human acclimatization to hypobaric hypoxia and its retention upon reascent. Even short exposures to high elevation can unleash a complex cascade of changes within red blood cells that make it easier for them to cope with low-oxygen conditions. What’s more, these changes persist for weeks and possibly months, even after descending to lower elevations. That finding may be a boon for medical researchers and also for hikers, skiers, and distance runners who don’t have time for extended altitude training.

4 tons of garbage collected in China's Everest cleanup
The nine-day cleanup that began in 2016 targets climbing trails and campsites between 5,200
and 6,500 meters (17,000 and 21,300 feet). Each year, about 60,000 climbers and guides visit the Chinese north side of the mountain, which China refers to by its Tibetan name, Mount Qomolangma.
On the Nepalese side, mountaineering expedition organizers have begun sending huge trash bags with climbers during the spring climbing season to collect trash that then can be winched by helicopters back to the base camp.
