I recently came back from a rock climbing trip for some much needed adventure and exploring. To me climbing is a challenge against myself. A place where I discover my boundaries and work through them. It makes me realize just how much power my mind has over what I can do. It also reminds me how fragile life is. Rock climbing is being outdoors, surrounded by nature, and taking in all it has to offer.
I chalk up, pull onto the wall and everything else in my head goes away. It's a moving meditation, nothing else makes me feel as present.
Here are a few photos from the trip in Leavenworth, WA and Squamish, BC.
