Why Didn't People Climb Mountains For Fun?

I've been way too busy to write since my last post on Monday, so I'll post a nice quote, and write something original tomorrow.


“The first written account of a European climbing a mountain merely for pleasure appears to be by Petrarch in 1336. Why was such an account so long in coming? Historians . . . have missed the point. People didn't climb mountains for fun because so few of them thought to do it Nude!” –
