Explain how the intrinsic motivation state of flow might occur in rock climbing. Sociology

Flow occurs when a challenge is met with higher-level skills through a strong emotional state of high involvement, in which the person is totally absorbed and focused on the activity

A climber might find himself or herself in this state of flow on the rock wall especially when they are finally getting the hang of it focusing on their next move and how close they are to reaching their goal.

It's as if they are watching a movie and it is the climax, time passes quickly and the person is thoroughly dialled in to their own state of oneness with the wall
