This guy is a great role model. I love his philosophy and approach to climbing. I personally love to solo sometimes. Most people would consider soloing to be stupid or crazy however there is a great deal of freedom associated with it. I don’t have to worry about whether my belay is going to catch me, or worse. After decking from anchors due to an inexperienced belayer it’s been very difficult to break back into that lead head. At least if I’m soloing it’s on me.
Climbed at Vacaville’s nut tree boulders on Sunday. 95° heat, very greasy, very hot, but very fun.
"Climbing has taught me a ton. It has allowed me to travel and see the world, and given me a venue to live a very full, exciting life. Above all else, I think climbing has taught me to live life without fear."
Ever thought of doing something like this when you’re sitting in traffic and you have shoes in your back seat?
#yes i have problems
I’m slowly coming to the realization that I need to have either a roommate or a dog. At school I live with Emma, at home, I have My golden retriever, and my cat. I’ve always known I’m bad at being alone, but this is getting ridiculous. I still live with my aunt, and she has her dogs, but they’re all in her house, and this apartment is just to empty. It’s fucking 2 o’clock in the morning, my insomnia is as bad as ever, and I’m sitting here, just wishing that I had another living thing in the room with me.
