I went out yesterday on my first climb. It was amazing and scary. I felt the same emotions I had when I first started skydiving. The difference, though, was when I got freaked out, I could stop and think about it, as opposed to letting gravity do its thing. Not sure if that is a good thing or not
Anyways, I have so much to learn. I would love to find a female mentor. I'm available pretty much all the time (hurray for housewife-ing!), so if anyone needs a climbing buddy (ok, student), let me know!
