A definition of rock climbing

I came across the following definitions by accident when I was researching rock climbing in Spain on the website www.andalucia.com.  These definitions made me smile and so I thought I should share them.

 “Those who find hiking not quite exciting enough may like to try rock climbing, which is hiking vertically upwards, mountaineering, which is hiking vertically upwards with snow, or caving, which is hiking vertically downwards (except for the return journey, which is hiking vertically upwards underground).”
