Get on with it. "Climbing is painful, period. The sooner you just accept that and stop looking for ways around it, the better you will learn how to climb."

"Why do people want to climb? Climbing, at its very core, is just a simple and hearty battle against gravity. The basic law of nature that oppressively pins us to the earth seems to be the one we feel the greatest need to fight against. Perhaps, then, this is why we are always trying to climb? Whenever we climb, we are proving that we can take on a force greater than ourselves. We?re pushing against something that holds us down. It?s the fight for freedom, freedom from the oppressive laws of nature as laid down by that rather aristocratically named gentleman, Sir Isaac Newton"

I don't much like climbing but I do it because it makes the downhill all that much more sweet!
