Headed up to NC this weekend with one of my primary objectives being to climb my first multi pitch. I was the last one in our party to go, but never got off the ground because half of our group had to bail on the route. Then 3 strangers from Texas invited me (a guy w no experience) to go up with them. They were super cool, taught me several new things, & kept me safe (you're welcome, mom). The climbing community is cool like that. We climbed until we met up with the first half of my party and I finished up with them. This is me standing about 400' up at the top of Jim Dandy + Cave Route. People can be pretty cool when you give them a chance. . 📷: @isabelk19
