Polly Climbs Again! / by Eric Dacus

3 months post-op, we were able to get out climbing; got to do 3 pitches of 5.6s and 5.7s.  It was great to see Polly excited and moving on the rock again.  I’ve been really impressed by her determination and discipline to do her physical therapy, swim, and bike to make her recovery work.  With ortho surgeries patient effort post-op matters almost as much as a skilled surgeon. I’m really proud of her, and I hope getting out like this will keep the optimism up to keep recovering (not every day is fun like climbing).

Nice short walk in


All smiles!
