mmmm...I feel I need the balance! Stressful work and climbing fits well together, I think the trick lies more in getting the right job. I work in a Business Enterprise collage in the UK as a network engineer; and while the money is very good I get more holidays than I could ever ask for! I work 08:30 to 16:30 and 15:30 Fridays :D There is more than enough time in my week to climb all I want to.

I think people should be banned from working weekends.
Besides if you do some reading you'll find all the big guns in the climbing industry has respectable jobs that grab allot of cash, to fund their climbing. There are a handful that as you say \"climb for a living\" but as we all know they are amongst the elite.

So you either make it your work by starting a company or you get your ass up that campus board so you can start working on some 8b's and some sponsors might see you 8)

If you get out of bed every morning thinking \"\" then I think you need to look for a new line. Although I'm not saying I sing something from the sound of music every morning I go to work... :idea:
You know you climbing to much when you start grading your girls
