All About Mountaineering


The term mountaineering describes the sport of mountain climbing, including ski mountaineering. Hiking in the mountains can also be a simple form of mountaineering when it involves scrambling, or short stretches of the more basic grades of rock climbing, as well as crossing glaciers.
While mountaineering began as attempts to reach the highest point of unclimbed big mountains it has branched into specializations that address different aspects of the mountain and consists of three (3) areas: rock-craft, snow-craft, and skiing, depending on whether the route chosen is over rock, snow or ice. All require experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety.
Mountaineering is often called Alpinism, especially in European languages, which implies climbing with difficulty such high, and often snow and ice-covered mountains as the Alps. A mountaineer with such great skill is called an Alpinist. The word alpinism was born in the 19th century to refer to climbing for the purpose of enjoying climbing itself as a sport or recreation, distinct from merely climbing while hunting or as a religious pilgrimage that had been done generally at that time

WHY CLIMB MOUNTAINS?

It’s one of the best ways for a man to plunge himself into a primal world of struggle and survival. Let’s explore the benefits.
Sculpts Your Body: A mountain expedition will put you in the best shape of your life. Ideally, you’d start training at 6-9 months before your climb. Having a clear reason to work out is a powerful motivator. Focusing your mind on your looming mission will keep you consistent. The training will likely put you in great shape. And then, there’s the climb. Your body will be consuming itself as the harsh conditions force you to burn to more calories than you can eat. You’ll be hard, strong, and incredibly ripped after a climb. Call it “the Mountaineering Cut.”
Introspection: Feeling low? Bored? Suicidal? Unmotivated? You may just need a reminder of your mortality. A controlled brush with death. Peering into the maw of an icy black abyss will make you see your life differently. You’re in real physical danger in the mountains. Facing that WILL make you appreciate your limited time.
Spiritual Growth: God stays in the mountains. If you’re a religious man, the intensity of your climb may cause spiritual revelations. Perhaps even epiphanies. Like Moses. If you’re not one of the Faithful? Well, you’ll still revel in nature’s glory. Because science.
Humility: The mountains make you humble. Despite your training and struggling, your goal may elude you. Contemplate your miniscule existence. Accept that you’re not a special snowflake. Just an insignificant speck of meaningless dust, floating along on an infinite white river of stars. And your clock is ticking.
Test Your Limits: Ascent will push you to the absolute limit. Mountaineering isn’t fun. Really, it’s the opposite. You’ll suffer as you face exhaustion, cold, snow, ice, altitude sickness, low oxygen, avalanche, falls, and countless other dangers. But your climb will harden you, physically AND mentally. It’s a true test of your ability to absorb and endure punishment.
Travel: If you’re like me, you don’t live near any serious mountains. But there are countless ranges located in exotic and beautiful places all over the planet. So now, you’ve got another good excuse to travel.
Bonding With Brothers: Mountaineering isn’t a solo sport. Sure, whether you actually summit is up to you. But that doesn’t mean you climb alone. Ideally, you’ll have a crew of solid dudes with you. Obviously, sharing life-threatening experiences forges strong ties.
Wilderness Survival: Just a few things you may experience first hand: Sleeping In Snow Dugouts, Enduring Altitude Sickness, Coping With Low Oxygen, Purifying Snow Into Water, Surviving White-Outs, Proper Crampon Use, Arresting Falls With An Ice Axe, Glissading.
The Best Shower Of Your Life: Want to experience the greatest shower ever? Try days of grueling, non-stop physical activity without changing clothes or bathing. All while shitting in paper bags, and having run out of soap. That first shower back down in the flat lands will be amazing.
Tighten Your Inner Game: Ultimately, you climb for yourself. It’s got nothing to do with girls. But successful mountaineering WILL indirectly strengthen your inner game. It’ll skyrocket your confidence. No matter who you are, or what you’ve done. And it’s no secret that women like bold and adventurous men. Dominate a few mountains and you’ll have incredibly rich stories to tell. Great big bait.
Now, go climb!
