The Essence of Rock Climbing…

 

"Chilling after the route" by Federica Valabrega

"Chilling At The Crag" by Federica Valabrega

I climb rocks because it feels

fulfilling and humbling 

I climb rocks because when I reach for the next hold

I must calm my mind 

I climb rocks because calming my mind

allows me to know myself better

I climb rocks because once at the top

I get to see the progress I made and smile

I climb rocks because

it feels good to smile at my efforts and let go being perfect

The only time I do not climb rocks

it’s when I am taking pictures of other climbers
