Alleviating Depression through Climbing
Feeling the need to get out on rock
Interesting article from Climbing magazine about how climbing can be used to focus the mind and alleviate depression.
I don’t know about true depression, but I do know that after 3 weeks in hospital following a burst appendix I’m keen to get out, touch some real rock, feel the sunshine (or more likely rain) and absorb the views. And, now I’m 10kg lighter I might even be able to climb a bit harder.
