Taking Risks

Pete on Salathe headwall, El Cap

There’s a series about risk taking on Slate Magazine. The quote below is from part two in the series and talks about rock climbing.

“The addiction to the rush is also neurological. Risk-takers are compelled to take risks in part because they become addicted to the intense feeling of arousal and pleasure found at their limit.”

Is this you telling everyone that solo climbing now excites you?
