Slip of the Day #1836

Leyla made her debut at Bridges today, nobly sacrificing her nails to challenge the plastic cliffs. After some initial hesitation on the taller walls, she took to the climb quite well, scaling several routes across the gym. She and Mitch tried the slackline later on, testing their balance to give their hands a rest.

I forgot to ask Leyla if she’d done this before, but she approached the line with good cheer. smiling every time she slipped, always stepping right back on afterwards. Laughing at your slips and falls is perhaps the best attitude you can take with these things – it makes it easier to get up and try again.

The fall is the best part, some days, laughing at how ridiculous your attempt was, and knowing you can do better.
