Many a metaphoric parallel can be drawn between climbing and motherhood, and it’s plain to see neither activity makes the other any easier.

by Mallory Logan, originally published in The Climbing Zine, Volume 6

Countless others who have already made the journey will offer their beta and guidance in kindhearted earnest, but in the moment of truth there is only you. Wide-eyed and confident, you step into the unknown to find your own way. Whether on lead or cradling a precious babe in your arms, balancing your life as a loving momma who still craves the send will always require a new approach. So cheers to you, climbin’ momma, for playing hard, loving harder and leading the next generation of dirtbags by example.

Mallory Logan is the Art Director for The Climbing Zine. She lives in Gunnison, Colorado where she runs RoShamBo, and is a newly elected City Council member.
