    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Belay Certification

Super excited to be halfway done with my belay certification. Outdoor Pursuit and the rock climbing wall staff offer belay certification free for students. In some ways, it was a lot easier than I expected but in others it was more difficult. I figured th technical stuff would be difficult to get down, but within twenty minutes I was doing my first practice belay. The harder part was belaying someone who is bigger than me. When they fall, you have to try to stay grounded so you need to be braced and ready. You also are using a lot of your own muscles to hold them up. When someone is climbing a difficult route, they may fall several times so you end up really getting an arm workout. I am excited about getting belay certified because I love learning new things and my friends and I will be able to belay each other when we go climbing.
