Rock Climbing Photo: Grand Teton
I have been climbing for over 15 years. I have climbed bold sport climbs, moderate multi pitch trad, and more recently, alpine endeavors. My experience has been that when I was new to the sport, and younger, I was willing to take on more acceptable risk and bolder leads. It seems that a lot of the people that hang out in the forums are energetic and willing to take on everything. Climbing has been good to me and has taken me to places around the world that I would have never seen otherwise. I can't see life without it, but I can't see sacrificing life for it. As such, I continue to climb my moderate, well protected routes, enjoying the movement on the rock while minimizing risk where I'm able. Every now and then I see lifers at the crag with decades of experience. If you have been climbing for over 20 years, I would like to know your journey. Keithb00ne
