One of the unexpected gifts of climbing has been the people I have met, who have generously shared wisdom, kindness, and beta with me. On good and bad days, I can always count on climbing as a safe space where I can leave stress and anxiety to the side, off my mind. I didn’t know when I started climbing how much I would feel uplifted by this community, both on and off the wall.
I hope you enjoy the cartoons. They are dedicated to YOU: everyone who “climbs” in every sense — reaches high, learns to fall, gets back up again, and finally sends.
If you have cartoon ideas, animal suggestions, or stories about BKB friendships, find me @cartoonconnie on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook, or say hi in person!
