    Pilot Mt. was an exceptional introduction to outdoor climbing. Plus, everyone was a joy to climb with and all were very generous with their equipment and insight.
    Special thanks to Hua-Ying for setting up so many routs and organizing such a fun day.

    I know you like to climb Chika but I'm going to be impressed if you can make it to both Pilot and Looking Glass.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
