I've climbed the First Sister many times over the past ten years, including the first time I went cimbing outdoors. It is always fun and gives me a chance to see how my attitude has changed. The 1st time I climbed it, I was eager to get back to the ground and uncomfortable with the exposure. When I climbed it with Brad & John a year or so ago, I noticed that I was totally comfortable hanging out on top.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
