If you follow this blog at all, and thank you if you do, you know that I wrote this post about my biggest, scariest, New Year’s Resolution. I have a fear of heights that I would classify as both mild and irrational. I also go to a climbing gym. I know that sounds nuts, but you see, everyone else in my family is really into climbing.
As I said in my New Year’s post. This is what I am trying to climb:
This is the point where any climber would roll their eyes a bit because it doesn’t get any easier than a V0- on the Hueco scale.
Well, I’m happy to say that yesterday, I MADE IT! and I have iPhone documentation:
I also tweeted about it. As of the New Year, I am on Twitter @marantophoto I have to say though that I “get” climbing more than I “get” Twitter, but what are you going to do?
So, I made it to the top. I needed some help though. The same person that took the photo was also at the top of the boulder when I was climbing, because I need some help when the panic sort of set in at the top. That is such a crazy feeling, the panic I mean. One minute I’m fine, the next, not so much.
As I mentioned in my original post, here is the gym shirt that I promised I would buy myself if I made it to the top:
So one resolution off this year’s list. A few more mundane ones to go!
