by Unknown

October 15, 2002

Have you ever flipped through the magazines and wished you could be like the professional climbers that you read about? Now you can! You can experience exactly what it is like to be a professional alpinist without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Many up-and-coming climbers have read my acclaimed book, An Idiot's Guide to Becomming an Alpinist, and I have received many emails asking, "How do I know if I am cut out to be an alpinist?" The answer is, "You're probably not cut out to be an alpinist, but don't let that stop you from the alpinist experience." Today, I will share with you the basic concepts behind building an alpinist simulator. A complete alpine experience can be simulated in the comfort of your own home by using just a few household objects. Follow the six simple steps below and your friends will be amazed at how quickly you became to look like a complete hard man.
