Success Or Failure?

Bailing off a climb is a failure, right? Especially several routes on the same trip. Here’s what “Migrant Science Teacher” says about her recent climbing experience at the “Gunks:”

“I just got really frustrated at my failed attempts to grow. It didn't hit me till the drive home - those weren't failed attempts. Three months ago I would have laughed at the thought of leading trad. Now I'm bailing off of a Gunks 5.6. I've grown so much. Not every step has to be big, it's the fact that I keep pushing myself.”
