I’m now harnessed in and my palms are bright white with chalk. I start climbing….only 30 feet to the top, right?
Ropes courses are measured from 5.1 to 5.15 (mine is a 5.6).
It’s around here where I start to feel totally freaked out. I yell down to Pieter that this is as high as I can go. Uh uh, I’m almost at the top. Gotta keep going, he says.
And, so, I do!
What goes up…must come down. Did it! It was awesome.
And, yeah…I’ll be back.
