Blog Brulee Recap

Hi friends! Exciting news: I’m officially belay certified, which means I am approved to safely indoor rock climb with others. :) As I mentioned, Matt and I took an intro to climbing course a couple weeks ago and on Friday night, I went back to the gym and took the belay test (Matt is going to take his soon – he was out of town).
