I feel very much alone because my tastes are so unique. I know lots of folks here can relate. I'm a rockclimber that likes gaming and japanese anime/manga. Where I'm from rockclimbers isolate their interests around things that are outdoors and don't tend to branch out into any geeklike interests. Many of them become newage bohemians and only carry environmental concerns. I'm wondering if there is anyone out there that can relate to me.

If you aren't sure about rockclimbing but have always been curious well I've got a youtube channel with lots of nice vids.

Not done any climbing outside of the states. I'd like to climb in argentina, korea, spain, canada. You in phillipines? I've advanced in my climbing a bit since I posted this. This month will mark my 4th year climbing, and now I'm trad climbing as well. I recently got my wilderness first responder certification and I'm working towards my single pitch climbing instructor certification. I even started a webseries to follow my quest in laying down 40 trad routes.

I had a thought about rockclimbing today. I was playing an MMO, and I was on a quest/raid. I realized that rockclimbing and questing were really alike in many ways. I have to sometimes travel to remote regions and then hike through a maze and find the right path if I have not sbeen to the area before. Luckily, I travel with a group of friends or companions from different walks of life with different expertise and different personalities. Sometimes, relationships flourish and sometimes people argue. We all have the same goal, which is to face a challenge that has proven unsurrmountable in the past in a rare opportunity to be among the few whom have succeeded, and through the struggle we find reason and we find strength, so that we may advance in our quest to be great and become greater withs seach obstacle overtaken. To the victor go the spoils.
