Emily Harrington and the Artist's Proposal, Part 1
This is a story about opportunities. Specifically, an opportunity presented to me this past April while I visited Antalya, Turkey. I was there for a month-long climbing trip sponsored by The North Face. I was excited, motivated to climb, and ready for an adventure. After Turkey, Sam Elias, Boone Speed and I planned to visit central Europe for another month: Slovenia, Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, and wherever else we decided to go. Then, one afternoon in Turkey, I received a strange email.
