For years I wanted to try rock climbing; and over a decade ago, I finally took the leap by booking a “lesson-for-two” at a local indoor gym. Finding a partner presented an unexpected challenge when everyone threw me excuses: “I’m afraid of heights”, “I’m weak”, “I have kids!”, and the ever-popular, “I want to live!” But providence prevailed and I stumbled upon an equally enthusiastic co-conspirator – a teammate, and soon-to-be friend.
