Games Climbers Play

A short speech based on the classic approach to climbing:

  • Practice trad climbing on short walls so that...
  • You can practice leading big walls so that..
  • You can practice alpine climbing so that...
  • You can climb in the Himalaya
Now people have the money to pay others to lead them up climbs because they don't have the time to learn on their own. 

At first, I thought he was complaining in his speech that too many people are climbing and they are not doing it the "right way." (You know the complaint; "When I was a kid I walked 3 miles uphill both ways to school.") But he surprised me with his conclusion.
