I’ve been out and about the mountains for @colabcreative and @janinakuzma for the past 8 days. Such a trip, our mountains never cease to amaze me, so dynamic, cold, hot and harsh - a natural human filter and a gateway all at the same time. Easy travel up high and increasingly hard down low, but always so worth it...
Some days you have to wake up at 2am to face down big fears and stand on top of the most challenging 14er in the state of Colorado. During the climb, my thoughts were consistently along the lines of “what the fuck am I doing on this extremely dangerous mountain” and “I can’t believe I just made it through another 30 feet of sticking my hands into cracks and hoping the soles of my shoes don’t slide off this rock.” After I made it down unscathed, I rattled off a list of words in my head that I happily describe myself as: Brave, resilient, tenacious, strong, enduring, BADASS, level headed, committed. Feeling very proud of myself that I didn’t let my healthy fear of and respect for this mountain deter me from climbing to the top when I was ready and in the company of others with far more experience than myself. Touching the top of Capitol Peak might just be my greatest accomplishment to date. Thank you @inverseinhale for inviting me on this amazing adventure and continuing to share your climbing expertise.
