My First Lead Climb

Today I miss rock climbing. As I am frequently referred to now as “bootstrap,” I have been unable to climb. The rush and the thrill that come from these rocks is indescribable as my brother Max would put it. So today I just miss it.

This picture was taken this summer in Boise Idaho with my brother Alex. The rock was a little shaky and it kept breaking off. So I did not get to lead climb an entire wall, but he let me practice clipping in. You can see it is a big jump, but when you go for it you usually get what you want.

Persistence Baby!
