To Abigail, Mountaineer Extraordinaire

To Abigail, Mountaineer Extraordinaire

When first we met, you hardly could climb
You couldn’t tell a col from a nursery rhyme

In no time at all, you determined to lead,
The only thing lacking was your skills and your speed

Stouthearted and bold, you untied from the rope
Then people looked up, and said
‘who’s that dope?’

Free solo and sketch, we all thought you would die
On Corner Crack you almost took to the sky

On the Beckey-Chouinard, you sandbagged a few,
Megan and Duncan got only a view.

With a vertical mind, your future looks bright,
On steep snow and ice, you never took fright

Into the mountains, we always shall go,
Theres nowhere but everywhere, so lets enjoy the show
