Yosemite National Park / June 20, 2011
One very bright morning, Matt and I went rock climbing. Many climbers call Yosemite the "rock climbing capital of the world," and I feel pretty lucky to have gotten the chance to do some climbing there.
Rock climbing is crazy- for lack of a better word. When you look at a rock face you might think "there is no way I can climb this," but you can. It's amazing how much you can do with just the very tips of your fingers and edges of your feet.. the trick is that you have to believe you can do it. The hardest part for me is trusting my feet since one of my biggest fears is hiking/climbing smooth flat rock.
I prefer climbing outdoors, but I think we're going to try an indoor gym soon since we don't have the luxury of natural granite faces out here on long island. Darn it. I am looking forward to getting Alexi and Dave to take us climbing in CT.. they're my original instructors <3
also.. Happy Friday!
