In my case I'm friggin aye certain that they will. Doesn't matter though, the reasons I and many others participate in climbing are far removed from the values of competitive sport climbing. Someone who gets excited by semantic debates could tickle themselves silly arguing that what I do isn't even a sport. Fair enough, don't care. It's not that I don't like sport or competition, love bike racing, but that's not what gets me excitited about climbing.

I saw some competition climbing in Chamonix. I presume the climbers were at a pretty high level, cause I don't think many people would stand around and watch numpties climb in that town; and the Austrian national team was in attendance. They were strong, pulling moves onsight I couldn't touch - it was also shit boring, and not the sport I had crossed the equator to participate in.
