The 'core' climber IS the image they sell.

In reply to:
"Image" can come dangerously close to "Ego".

Ah there's that dreaded word ego. But for ego El Cap would never have been climbed.

In reply to:
If I let my ego get in the way then I would have quit climbing a long time ago since I am not climbing 5.12's yet considering how long I have been climbing.

Who said anything about an ego getting in the way? Ego is the fuel of climbing's competitive fire.

There are more than one definitions for "Ego". I believe the one you are referring to when using the word "ego" is: "the element of being that consciously and continuously enables an individual to think, feel, and act." The definition I am referring to when using the word "ego" is: "conceit" - "an exaggerated opinion of one's ability, importance, etc." These definitions are from The World Book Encyclopedia. These two differences in the use of the word "ego" could definitely cause a misinterpretation of my posting. If you are using the first definition I quoted, I agree. However, it isn't the definition I was trying to portray. Also, there is a lot more to my posting/ reply than just about egos.
