Climbing has never just been an easy thing for me... I've had to work very hard very often to be able to climb harder than the next guy. I care that I work hard, I even share my training tips with other people. I'll often work out a 6 month plan for progression and record all the results in an empirical manner.

Take a look at the top athletes in the World Cup Circuit, I'm pretty sure that most of them have a logical training program that follows a pretty rigid schedule. I think it's really cool to hear about large amounts of effort being placed into one's training! Whenever I chat to someone with big dreams I always recommend a logical approach and a schedule to record progress.

I don't know very many South Africans who are on the "too cool to care" bandwagon...
I hate this real world place... I'd be more than happy to live out there rather...
