When your on the side of a mountain with only clouds to cushion a fall you need a lot of trust.
It’s scary knowing you can fall, but you put trust in the harness, rope, and especially the person holding the other end. Even if you are a great climber and rarely fall, you can be confident in reaching out for that next pocket because of the trust you have for the support system.
I hope I get another chance to take some photos of rock climbing. I had a lot of fun with this. It’s very different from photographing any other sport. Balance, strength, and a bit of daring all goes into the sport.
And a lot of looking up.
