My heart has been in the climbing “business” for nearly 25 years and with the opening of Whetstone, it has now come full circle. For me, climbing has been and is, spiritual and life-changing. So too for the many others I’ve met on remote cliffs on other continents. Many of us need something that represents a way, a passage through life, a discipline or philosophy to follow. I believe the mental and physical rigors of climbing offer a template for wellness and inner peace.
