Response to Are Mountain Climbers self-centred, self-contained, selfish and single-minded?
My observation is that so-called "team sports" are simply busting at the seams with egomaniacal hotheads, and I think it's inaccurate to suggest the sport of climbing is for some reason worse. I've known a few egotistical and overly competitive climbers who I won't share a rope or a backpack train with, but many more are decent, considerate people with whom you can comfortably trust your life.
