Mentally, climbing can induce an overwhelming feeling of joy - upon finishing a route, learning a new move or completing a training session. It can become addictive for reasons you would want it to be addictive. It equips you to develop your thinking capabilities to finish challenging.
Climbing Vs Other sport
Climbing teaches to use your being in entirety. You are not just using your wrists or your legs or your arms. You are using every bit of yourself, every minute. Your entire body is engaged and ready for the next move and the move after that. You take your mind off one part and you risk coming off the wall. Your mind is working furiously, weighing the various possibilities. There’s a hundred ways to get from one hold to another. But you need to find which way works best for you. One size does not fit all, when it comes to climbing. You are constantly readjusting, recalculating and moving forward. You are in every sense of the word, busy, while climbing. Most importantly, you learn to not categorise your capabilities as physical and mental, you learn to recognise your self as one.
