MINDFULNESS ~ 'DON'T JUDGE'
Let’s face it; nobody likes being around people who are always making derogatory remarks about other climbers. It makes you wonder if they are talking smack behind your back. Don’t allow yourself to be one of them. It says more about you than it does about the person being judged. To learn more, please listen to this podcast and encourage your friends to do the same. Together, we will create the climbing community we all wish to see.
THE GOLDEN RULE
The Golden Rule is a philosophical principle that has been present in various cultures and religions throughout history. Its origins are believed to date back to ancient Egypt, where it was inscribed on the walls of temples as a moral principle. The golden rule simply states that you should treat others the way you would like to be treated. This rule embodies essential ethical and moral principles such as empathy, reciprocity, and compassion.
THE COVER PHOTO STORY

Kennedy, Martin Luther King, John Lennon, Muhammad Ali, and Bruce Lee. I was the least likely person to rock climb or scale towering skyscrapers, but I enjoyed scampering up old-growth hardwood trees. When I discovered Quoddy Head State Park, the most northeastern point in the United States, I was raking blueberries with the Micmac Indians in Cherryfield, Maine, crouched in a field under the scorching sun.
