I'd Rather Be Climbing

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.

Yeah, so that photo shoot I did.. I wish I was as gorgeous as photoshop thinks I could be.

Beautiful day out at Eagles Bluff. This picture was taken from the very top of the cliff before we dropped our rope down. Couldn’t have asked for better conditions. Also, am I the only one who finds it adorable that my father bought me a hot pink climbing rope?

theselflessoftheearth asked: how have you beeen?!?! :D


Answer:

I’ve been stressed, and exhausted. In other words, I’m back at MSSM. Which means I can only get on tumblr about once a month, so, sorry for the delayed response :p

#rock climbing  #trip  #weekend  #extended break  #last trip of the season 

Climbing for the first time sense April has to have been one of the most satisfying feelings. I wish I could spend more than an hour at the wall at a time, but that’s a work in progress.

blackshweep asked: Whats the climbing like in Maine? (Its so flat there)


Answer:

I spend a lot of time in the gym, because all the cliffs are outside my reasonable proximity. But the few places I’ve managed to make the journey to have been eagles bluff near Bangor, and otter cliffs in Acadia national park. I know there are others, but none that I can speak personally on. Everything around Bangor is finger bitting granite, but fun non the less. On the other hand Acadia has nice, soft, sea warn stone that drops down to the ocean.
