Lead climbing
 

Yesterday was my crash course on lead climbing. Lead climbing is when you lead up the route with a bunch of clips and as you go up you clip your rope into them. Really it sounds super simplistic but it is super scary to try and it's scary to fall from. I learned so much on my first day and I really think there is an art to climbing such big heights outside. Not only is it a lot to take in when you are climbing but it's a lot when you actually are trying to clip into your next bolt. 

Honestly I'm not sure how much I can do today but I am going to give it another go. Today we are going to be taking photographs while we're climbing and I think I'm more excited for that then I am for the actual climbing. Not only do I get to try it again but I get to also see how I look when I climb. Really I am excited about it and I can't wait to see how they turn out. 

So again, please pray for my safety as I go on this adventure back to the great outdoors. I am excited to see what I can do today and see what comes from me while he is going ham with the camera. It's just so cool to know people who do so many different things and to be able to bond over that. Climbing has definitely changed my life.
