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.

I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone by. I haven’t had a day off from work in 3 weeks, but I finally made it back to the beach today. It’s unbelievable that I leave for Maine the 18th..

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.
