What drives you to climb? The money? The groupies? The fame? What?

Haha, its hard to explain why any of us choose such a masochistic sport. We freeze our butts off waiting for the perfect temperatures. We slice our fingers open on the regular. Our hands dry out and crack because we don't use moisturizer due to fear of not having perfect skin. We deprive ourselves of eating certain foods in order to maintain a perfect weight. We become broke because most climbers don't have time to work because climbing is priority and we fail more than 80% of the time. But, there's just something viral about it that won't go away :)
