A Simple Question from EASTERN MOUNTAIN SPORTS on Vimeo.
You have a unique talent for posting rubbish videos.
Simple but relevant. During a recent climb at the Grampians, I had this weird feeling like pure elation.Told my wife and she thought I was a bit nuts. Is it the feeling of conquest?

Well, I don't post everything I watch if that makes you feel better.
I thought it was relevant because I've never found an adequate answer to the question posed. I often try and end up stumbling along like the guy midway through. Sure it's not all crimping and thumping techno, but sometimes it's nice to think about things, isn't it?
If you want something with actual climbing in it, did you try Abyss? Again, there's some talking about ethics and stuff interspersed in the 45 minutes, but it's very pretty and some of the problems are look quite interesting.
Yeah, because a procession of inane American morons is incredibly thought-provoking.
What's your answer then?
"because when you climb there's no internet lampreys trying to suck all the enjoyment and life out of you"

I climb because I become flooded with spiritual and emotional wholeness as I am wrapt in the immense love of God flowing through me as I am part of him.

There's a climb somewhere in Tassie (can't remember where, maybe Ben Lomond) called "I'm no ordinary top bunk c--k pounder because Jesus loves me". Inspired.

Sounds like Dunc may climb for therapeutic reasons, anger management possibly?
I'm not angry, just disappointed.
I like the chick who says "the rock doesn't care if you're tall or short". Hahahahaha, idiot! Clearly she's never tried Mirage.
