In his hilarious book, Stuff White People Like: A Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions Christian Lander wrote, “White people love rock climbing almost more than they love camping. This is because the activity affords them the opportunity to be outside, to use a carabiner for something other than their keys, and to purchase a whole new set of expensive activity-specific clothing and accessories.” I think there’s a little more to it than that- the sense of accomplishment and amazing view are a pretty big factor, but a funny generalization nonetheless. To celebrate this extreme sport that is quickly climbing to the top of many peoples’ lists of hobbies, we searched Instagram for this collection of photos that will make you want to join in on the fun.[see_also]
