    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Lead Climbing at the Rock Wall

Last night at the rock wall, a few of my friends and I were lead climbing. A couple of my friends, pictured in the photo, have been lead climbing for a while now, but for me it’s still more practice at this point. I work at the rock wall three days a week, and as a part of our training this year we were required to learn and practice lead climbing and belaying.

The rock wall we have at St. Scholastica has multiple top ropes for climbing; the kind most people are familiar with where the rope is already secured at the top of the wall. Lead climbing is a bit different. The rope is brought up with you as you climb and clipped into the various draws (metal loops on the wall) as you go. You’re basically creating your own top rope as you climb higher. It’s more challenging and requires more skill. Although it can be nerve wrecking for me personally, I’m beginning to enjoy it more with every climb.
