I did write on my climbing helmet, in a fashion that could be read by others should I become inverted while on a roped climb, “SAFETY THIRD”, with Sharpie markers and took it with me to the new climbing gym for my rope certifications. I got three of the four (toprope belay and climb, and lead belay) that you can get, and that’s all I’ll be seeking until I regain my former climbing level and exceed those limits in my climbing skill set. It went well, for the most part. I was instructed on the theoretical nuances of belaying with a GriGri, but in practice, things are quite different. I know that. My climbing partners know that. That’s all that needs to be said. I got through it fine. I have a rock solid technique that works and keeps people alive out in the real world of rock climbing outdoors. Gyms are different. AJ, Emily, Brian, and I climbed for three hours after we got certified. It was great! I was very impressed with the new climbing gym. Billings, welcome to your new climbing gym, Steepworld Climbing and Fitness!!! Now get on the wall!!! Let’s have some fun!!!
