New Baktun – A New Climbing Era

In 2012 I left a comfortable desk job to refocus toward a more value driven life. I needed to nourish my climbing roots and I also earned professional life coaching accreditation to support others like myself, casting off on their own unique journey.

Shortly after, though, I broke my arm. Yet, as in all things, a hiatus offered a period to reflect and recharge and build motivation. I climbed New Baktun on the first day of the new Mayan era, called a baktun. The internet was awash with theories of Y2K-esque endings, but I saw it as a new beginning. New Baktun is the story of my return to hard climbing after life changes and a broken arm, marking the dawn of a new era for me, too.
