Shannon Lochridge, 10, climbs the structures at Summit Climbing Gym in Grapevine on Thursday, August 7, 2003. Lochridge is a member to the U.S. national climbing team, where she qualified in both the speed and difficulty categories.
This young lady was simply amazing. I had to climb the wall in the background with some of my equipment for another shoot a few weeks earlier, so I knew how much effort (and sweat) it takes. She flew to the top of this obstacle like she had wings.
