Why do I climb?

My worrying parents always ask me, "why must you climb?"  The answer is 1) for the challenge, and 2) because I can.

I have always sought to undertake, what one friend refers to as, BHAGs - Big Harry Ass Goals.  Those things that stretch us as human beings.  We, I, need this in my life to feel accomplished.  I get some of that from my real estate career, but it's not enough.

And because I am lucky to be healthy and fit, and have the time and flexibility to climb, it seems I should.  To once again put it on the line and do something that is really hard and adventurous.  A test of physical and mental endurance.  Preparation and execution.

An opportunity to be taken advantage of.  A project.  And by its very nature, a road less traveled.
