Reinhold Messner is the world's most accomplished solo mountaineer; he even solo'd Everest. Substitute the word dive for climb:

"So when I start to climb, I am so concentrated that there is nothing else existing. In this concentration, everything seems quite logical. The danger is gone. But the concentration is absolute."

Took the words right out of my big mouth ;-)
