This is not really a blog post about finding specific rad new lines or the latest new ticks, it's about how thankful I am for climbing. I know it seems like we are never completely satisfied with our climbing; we are always training, pushing personal grades, searching for the best boulders or routes and always wanting more. From a non-climbing view it might seem insane to work on a problems or routes for hours, days, seasons, years, working through frustrations with beta and conditions...and it is maddening. Then when we finally succeed, not much more than a few high fives and cheers and we are off to another challenge. But this is why I am so thankful for climbing. You can use climbing as a vehicle to travel to new places, meet new people, learn many new things, and learn a lot about yourself. We can also use this perseverance in other day-to-day challenges that life throws you. All of us should be thankful for finding climbing and know that you are probably better off than a lot of people because you climb. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
