Why Climb?

Students read an article about the experience of some experienced climbers on Mt. Hood in Oregon. As a class, they brainstorm a list of the reasons whey people choose to participate in high-risk sports. In groups, they determine if a test should be given to climbers before climbing mountains. They role-play the role of advisors to the search and rescue team to advise them on whether the search should continue.
