I started projecting my first 5.12- last night. The holds are thin, the feet are thin. I balance carefully and move with precision. Veins come out along my arms. I breathe in and out, often surprised at how strong my hands have become.

I make it two thirds of the way up the route before my muscles are exhausted. Russell lowers me to the gym floor.

I am proud of myself.

And at the same time, I wonder if my climbing goals are at odds with my fertility.
