My friend, Nick Murphy, Lost Trails Photography captured spectacular evidence of teaching me to climb outdoors...and that I made it. Nick was a patient and fun instructor and guide. At no point did I feel any pressure to be or do anything more than I could in that moment. Plus he managed to take this cracking shot of me (while his friend belayed me from below). What you can't see is my hilarious concentration face.
