Gripped - - 10 QUESTIONS -

Do you re­mem­ber your first out­door climbs? Yes, but more the ex­pe­ri­ence than a spe­cific climb. I re­mem­ber be­ing scared and the dif­fer­ent stages of get­ting through it. I loved go­ing to Grassi Lakes and climb­ing the over­hang­ing sec­tions where I was the least scared to fall. One of the clear­est was get­ting on my first 5.11 in Skaha. I got scared half­way up and my coach at the time wouldn’t take. He told me I could let go or con­tinue and that he would tie me off while he ate his lunch so I could de­cide. Af­ter some time, I went for it.
