Master of my domain 5.9
A trip to Cheakamus a fortnight ago had me both on toprope and lead. I had lead the first pitch, and my friend Richard lead the second pitch.
Having only learned to lead climb this summer, I was excited and nervous but confident in my ability. It's easy to be confident when you are climbing a 5.7 slab. As a friend of mine likes to put it, it's practically like walking up a ladder! Well there goes my ego.
Jokes aside, I know that it is perfectly normal to be afraid of falling, it keeps me from making otherwise

The views at the top were remarkable!
