While rock climbing at a gym with a friend yesterday, I thought of how simple rock climbing really is. I don't mean technique-wise. Most of the time we were just hoisting ourselves up that wall with little grace and brute force. Yet, looking up, trying to find the next rock to grab and a place to put my feet, I was completely focused. All I had to do was climb. And then laugh at myself if I fell, because I knew my friend would catch me.
