"We are all climbing the pitches of our individual souls while learning and growing on our way back home"

An Adventurous soul with desire and head over heels to see and share as much of this world with all of humanity. A 22 year old climber who has loved the art since I could first walk. Climbing is my main form of stress relief and therapy. It may sound weird, but I feel most alive being off the ground and my feet aloft on a precarious ledge or my crampon spike stuck into ice.
My first climb was when I was five. It was a small 10-15 foot tall cherry tree in the yard of our house in Ohio. Instead of using a rope(as I didn't have one) I thought jumper cables would suffice, clipped to my belt loops and tree branches, it worked about as well as you can imagine!
The first real rock climbing I did was in Garden of the Gods Park on Buffalo Rock when I was 11 with my dad Herbert Hendricks (1946-2017). This was a very special climb. as it was the only true climb I did with him. My dad was an accredited climber with multiple first ascents in Colorado, Utah and even Yosemite. He taught me the ropes in our crabapple trees in Colorado. He would give me butt belays and beta on how to climb safely.
Climbing took off in high school. I joined the climbing team my sophomore year and went to state competitions in the gym. Since then I have climbed numerous routes.
PEACE LOVE AND CLIMBING
A look from behind...
I think most all would agree, THE WORLD IS BEAUTIFUL! Sometimes moments are so intense that a photo can not be taken, however these ones have.
