As the summer comes to an end, but the fall climbing season not yet here, I find myself reflecting back on projects past. Not the projects that I eventually found myself standing on top of, but the projects that I haven’t had a chance to put together. For me, nothing is more motivating than making progress on a long-term project. Sometimes projects last several years, are located thousands of miles away or even across national boarders. They always have one thing they have in common though: they always invite you back for another rounds of attempts. I can’t wait to get back to Colorado to put these to rest. Until then, time to hit the hang board!
