I will admit, as this is my second trip to this place, I am blown away by the quality of the rock, the natural nature of the way the routes flow. The fact that I have never dedicated some time to climbing here confuses me, and makes me question whether I even know what the hell I am doing after climbing for 15 years.
Why on earth don’t I live here?
And writing on her blog, Emily Harrington offers some pictures and some insights she gained from climbing with Graham the past couple of weeks:
Dave is one of those individuals who doesn’t train for climbing. He doesn’t believe in it. Instead, he believes in his own creativity and self-expression, and it’s evident when he climbs. He never stops believing in his ability to do a move or complete a route….As Dave has shown me, sometimes using your mind is more important than everything else.
