“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” ~ Sir Edmund Hillary
We all have “mountains” in our life. Some we tackle one day at a time, others are climbs we commit to our entire life. While we didn’t necessarily summit those figurative mountains at this event, we did have a chance to practice patience, see our strength come to life, be reminded of the community we have supporting us on our climbs and do something that perhaps we always thought impossible.
We learned the basic techniques of rock climbing as the expert trainers from Portland Rock Gym showed us the ropes (get it?) that we needed to scale the wall!
After class we headed over to Base Camp Brewing for snacks and drinks and to celebrate the “mountain” we all conquered together.
