Glimpsing the cables for the first time, my eyes filled with tears, an involuntary and unwelcome response to the daunting task ahead. We’re going to climb that? No way. No freaking way. I wasted no time verbalizing this opinion, stating that not only was I not going to climb the cables, but no one was.
When Jill and I began this trip we had not done a whole lot of backpacking. However, during the trip we’ve made a strong push to spend as much time on the trail as possible, and as such have picked up a few things. So, if you’re anywhere near where we were when we began, and have interest in playing around outside, maybe the next few posts will help you get started.
