"You don’t go for coffee after climbing; rather, going out for coffee is part climbing."

"You can’t buy a 5.12."

It’s interesting… You can buy Everest, but not 5.12…
This is the strongest belief I have about climbing and mountaineering. If you have to buy it, you shouldn’t be doing it.

"Climbing is the story we experience. Life is one pitch. Climbing shows us, through the mirror of the ascent, our own different facets. Height generates a challenge, our climbing partner belays our life. At the foot of the rock lies the choice of a pitch making a wish come true. I choose a universe, a difficulty, an effort, the beauty of a “line”, its story."
Antoine Le Ménestrel (via house-under-a-rock)
Oooh, so doing this when I have my own Christmas tree! Although I will have to incorporate the multitude of dog ornaments my mum has given me over the years!
That moment when some nice person at the library asks if they can share my table and I can’t answer because my mouth is glued shut with peanut butter, so I make a series of vaguely welcoming/apologetic/very Canadian hand gestures.
"You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god’s sake!"
It’s a stay in bed, Christmas movie watching, selfie taking kinda night.
