I Have recently had the thrill of learning to rock climb

I Have recently had the thrill of learning to rock climb. On my very first day out, we were to rappel down a sixty-foot incline. While waiting my turn I was so impressed with the calmness, patience, and confidence of the instructor; he never hurried us but constantly reassured us with his knowledge of the principles of climbing.

When my turn came, I found myself asking many of the same questions the other students kept asking, such as "Why do I have to lean back away from the rock?" "Are you sure the ropes can hold me?" Then it dawned on me that this instructor certainly knew much more about rock climbing than I did, and really I would rather trust his understanding of this sport than my own, which was very limited at that time. With that, I listened very carefully to what he told me to do, as my intuition guided me to do. And the results were successful.
