P-Shizzle Posted February 1, 2015 Share Posted February 1, 2015 (edited) I think so. Perhaps it's because the participatory costs of climbing/mountaineering are so high (e.g. gear, appropriate clothing, surplus income to take time off work, etc.), it tends to attract those who can afford it: physicians, attorneys, trustafarians, and the like. You know, generally speaking, people who have never really suffered too much and/or endured any significant hardship for any sustained period of time. In my brief foray into the world of off-trail travel, many of the people I have encountered are snotty condescending pricks who act like smug frat boys. I know I'm making a sweeping generalization here, however I assume there may be others who share my opinion. Thoughts?
