It Was a Good Climb



Camp V was our weekend home

Behind the Chevron Station,
Beneath the Great Walls,
We loved climbing.

What did Cal Students know?

Our favorite shout out

After defying gravity,
Dangling perilously,
Above it all, was:

*It was a good climb,
And nobody died!"

All our lives are

Filled with adventure,
Sustained by love,
Where we know

It is a good climb,

Kirk Gothier
