Or, what I've learned in 17 years of climbing... In my 20s, it was strong fingers, bouldering and a bit of fearlessness; in my 30s it was broadening the experience, exploration and FAs, and now at 40 it's about revisiting my 20s, and encouraging my daughter to climb anything, anywhere, anytime.
Location South Hadley, Mass
Best Climbing Experience A tricky downclimb off Paglia Orba, a peak in Corsica, in bare feet (boots wouldn't stick) at night, beside a waterfall - climbing by Braille.
