Through a spiritual lens—A LESSON FROM ROCK CLIMBING

Climbing is about finding perfect rock. It's about finding a perfect equilibrium between gravity, friction, fitness, and nature. How fast it's done, or who does it harder, or first, or without chalk, or barefoot, is far less relevant than that you have done it. A climber can't beat gravity—the real competition. A climber can only work with it.

So what's the point? For some, this lesson is a personal journey into an understanding that is more than geological—that there is more to life than beating the competition. For me, this has been a spiritual point not taken lightly.
