  • I did it, I climbed it!

    I climbed Laguna Los Tres and saw the miracle that is Laguna Sucio.

    I pretended I was Frodo climbing the mountains of Doom with my wooden stick rambling up the steep rockface. It worked.

    I stole strength from everyone who urged me to continue and gave hope to all strugglers on my way down.

    I don't know if I would have deared before and I don't know what has changed. Do I feel safe knowing me more?
