Punchbowl Falls (By Twinkle Tobes)

Columbia River Gorge, Oregon


“For me, climbing is a form of exploration that inspires me to confront my own inner nature within nature. It’s a means of experiencing a state of consciousness where there are no distractions or expectations. This intuitive state of being is what allows me to experience moments of true freedom and harmony.”

-Lynn Hill

Among bad-ass women in this world, Lynn Hill is at the top of the list. 

She is the first person (not just the first woman) to free climb The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite. 

and a year after she freed The Nose, she re-climbed it again in less than 24 hours.
