I've learned so much traveling. Not just with climbing but in life as well. I've lived in other countries, different states, and experienced so many different styles of climbing and life that I can't imagine who I would be without those experiences. 🌏New blog post up, link in bio. 📸 @levi_dudley

Sometimes I feel like a fraud. In work & climbing & life & recovery. Things aren’t always easy or linear. Things aren’t always perfect. So this is my public reminder that it’s okay to be not okay, for myself and for others. It’s okay to allow yourself to feel, and process, and take the time to recover. To reach out, to share your story, and to lean on others. It took a long time for me to accept this, but it really is okay to not be okay. . . 📸 @dave_delen took of me trying something well above my grade
