I STARTED ROCK CLIMBING last summer. I wish I’d started when I was in diapers.
Over the winter I joined a climbing gym and progressed very nicely. Now I await the snow to fully melt and the sun to dry the rocks. It will be my first season leading and I’m really stoked about it.
Climbing seems like a natural fit for me at this time in my life. There is a ton of climbing around where I live and the community is top notch. I enjoy the meditative aspect of it — the focus required when clinging by my fingertips. Nothing else exists at that moment.
I wonder what this baby was thinking about.
