Climbing is a sport, a hobby, and metaphor for life's lessons. A climbing course for undergraduate students was designed on the basis of the principles of rock climber and educator Kurt Hahn, who transferred lessons learned from physical activity into lessons for life and whose philosophy underpins the Outward Bound program. Hahn's 10 principles for sound mind-body-spirit are described.
