Mountaineering is just one level up from backpacking and rock climbing with some winter camping thrown into the mix. Anyone can become a mountain climber if he/she has the drive to accomplish more than just packing into camp, scrambling up some rocks, or climbing a cliff face or frozen waterfall.
Put all of these skills together and you have a vertical endeavor that will push you to the limits of your capabilities. Watch the sun rise and see the amazing site of the mountains shadow cast onto the tops of the clouds, or the view of a thunderstorm from high above the clouds.
