Meet Magtutu


After a brief internal pep talk, I began up the route. I was surprised that the first pitch, or section, felt so easy as I clipped into the safety anchors 100 feet up. My partner pulled over the ledge I was sitting on and we looked up into the meat of the climb – two hundred feet of overhanging or vertical cracks and corners with only two places to stand and rest.

The potential for scary, possibly dangerous falls defines the risk climbers take for the ironic payoff of learning about how to make risks safer. This means that a large portion of a climber’s learning involves dealing with fear. When you’re hundreds of feet off the ground it’s easy to become uncomfortable when a route approaches your limits. Your brain naturally responds to this discomfort by trying to control the situation; it produces doubts and a strong desire to escape.
