Style first. Safety second. Or so my husband and I joke about while we’re climbing. Even if the technique is wrong, just ensure it looks stellar… I assure you. Being as safe as possible while climbing is our number one priority. Or as we like to say, we implement a lot of high-risk mitigation strategies.… Continue reading Horseshoe Canyon Ranch
