Many people enjoy mountain climbing. This dangerous sport can be even more enjoyed if people know what they are doing. Inexperienced mountain climbers die each year from the lack of experience. I believe mountain climbing can either be a irresponsible risk or worthwhile adventure.
Being an inexperienced mountain climber is an irresponsible risk. It is an irresponsible risk to be a novice to mountain climbing and climb a mountain like Mount Everest. A mountain climber can increase their chance of dying by inexperience. People pursuing dangerous sports like mountain climbing should either be tested or licensed first. It is even more irresponsible to go climbing alone.
On the positive side now, mountain climbing can also be a worthwhile adventure. The mountains draw climbers who love the natural world and posses an adventurous spirit. To reach the summit of a mountain peak is not always easy, but it always seems worthwhile. It always seems worth the effort to stand atop a mighty peak and look across the world with the eyes of a soaring eagle.
Although climbing a mountain seems simple, it is important to remember looks can be deceiving. Having the knowledge, experience, and equipment are all the important things needed to climb a mountain. People that want to climb a dangerous mountain should be licensed first. That way they can have the knowledge of mountaineering to avoid serious injury or death.
Thus mountain climbing might seem enjoyable, remember it can also be dangerous. It can either be a worthwhile adventure or irresponsible risk. It all depends on the persons experience though.
