The last couple years I’ve been saying “This is it. This is the year I start climbing 12a.”
Yet one thing after another kept getting in the way of my climbing goals. Work, time, travel, excuses and excuses. It really mainly came down to not being able to balance work, life and finances to allow for enough climbing time.

So ultimately, the goal is to train my new baby kitten to be as epic and outdoorsy as we are. Using lots of research and trial by error I’m taking (hopefully) the right steps to preparing him for the outdoors.
I believe in learning from our failures and braving the things that scare us. I hope that I can impart these beliefs onto my little Dragon.
