My partner, who was feeding rope out to me while I climbed, had just figured out I didn’t have enough gear to finish my climb.
My mind froze. “Don’t panic,” I told myself.
Below me was 75 feet of rock. Above me were four bolts that I needed to clip on to safely to finish the climb.
One wrong move and I could take a horrible fall.
I’ve been rock climbing almost as long as I’ve been investing. Rock climbing is the type of activity that uses the same skills as investing … to me at least.
