I’ll start this off by saying I have no experience climbing whatsoever, unless you count jungle gyms when I was little.

A week prior to completing this climb I chickened out right at the bottom, I nearly did it again but my mate wouldn’t let me. This was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done in my 17 years of living, there were points where I thought I was stuck, points where I thought I was going to die, but nothing compares to the feeling once you’ve reached the top. The view is immaculate and it feels like you can see forever.
Strangely I felt like going down was easier. A man told us of a walking trail at the bottom which links up to the halfway point, but we were unable to find it so we had to go the same way down as we went up. All was well until I reached the bottom, I slid the last 2 or so metres down on my butt and -because I was doing it barefoot- skinned my toe and a bit of my hand. Nonetheless I was thankful to have reached the bottom alive and will definitely count my blessings before I decide to do that again.
