Learning how to rock climb isn't an easy task, but our goal is to make that task a little less intimidating. We break it down for you. Our Intro clinics are designed for a variety of skill sets - for those who have never put on rock climbing shoes to others who have climbed in a gym but want to make the transition into the outdoors. Join us Saturday, 10/7 for one of our final events until next spring at Smith Rock State Park! For more information or to sign up, click the link in our bio.
"Look to yourself. You free. Nothing and nobody is obliged to save you but you. Seek your own land. You young and a woman and there's serious limitation in both, but you are a person too. Don't let Lenore or some trifling boyfriend and certainly no devil doctor decide who you are. That's slavery. Somewhere inside you is that free person I'm talking about. Locate her and let her do some good in the world."

Mark and I are officially in our last week as @Columbia1938's Directors of Toughness
we find ourselves at a crossroads figuring out what's next.
it's a little scary deciding where to go from here.
but it's also an exciting moment,
one full of possibility, challenge, reflection and assessment.
and freedom too.
