I'd Rather Be Climbing

Ask Away   Submit   The Bar   The Face Behind The Screen   

My name is Aly, and I'm from Down East Maine, living in Northern Aroostoock at The Maine School of Science and Math in the winter, and working on Long Island in the summer. Climbing is my passion. This blog is a culmination of all dreams, travels, and problems. I'm always here for questions or to talk, so fill up my inbox. Climbing is the one thing that keeps me going, and has saved me from my self. I may not look like much, but I’ll kick your ass as long as we're going vertically.

Yoga on the peak? I think yes.

"Because really, climbing doesn’t make any sense. There is always a much easier way up the rock if the goal was to get to the top. But that’s not the goal. The goal is the dance."

This is the third painting in my ongoing ‘Solitude’ series. It sounds cheesy, but everyone needs to have a temporary escape from their past and future. The reason it comes easily to ‘adrenaline junkies’ is because it’s dangerous to think about anything other than what’s happening right in front of you. Now go play outside! Jump off things you shouldn’t, throw nature at other nature, and just play.
