Got my 300 pound self up the wall
This is so relatable
I'm moving to Los Angeles in February and don't know anyone. This is how I'm going to make new friends.
Still getting my 300 pound self up the wall. Now with my own gear and a gym membership! This community’s positive words are what kept me going.
I lost my climbing partner, close friend and brother in law to suicide today. This traverse was a joint project of ours we had been working on for around a year. Neither of us will send it now. Tell your friends you love them. Reach out if you need help. RIP mate, off belay.
