Small Things and Big Things

What’s more about climbing is it’s quintessential effect that transforms you to appreciate the smaller things in life and help you see the bigger picture.  It’s a humbling experience to be climbing outdoors where you are with the elements.  You are dwarfed by the presence of these huge rock formations, the depth of the water you fall on when deep water soloing and the immensity of areas you visit while searching for a project.  Then, you also get to see the smallest of crimps.  They are small but as small as they are they also present an inspiring validity of our existence.  We are giants in this whole new different scale and yet not all of these small crimps will be easily dispatched.  Small things also demand a level of respect sometimes equal and even greater than those you would expect.
