What’s your favorite feature at Brooklyn Boulders?
Everything at Brooklyn Boulders is just amazing! Since I’m a relatively new climber and I’m working on my thesis these days, I would say my favorite feature is the collaborative workspace. It’s a perfect spot to work, I can get up and lift weights, if I get tired I can stand and work, and do a little bit rock climbing every evening. It’s WAY better than sitting in the library. I also like the yoga class and fitness class.

What’s a climbing goal you have for July?
As I mentioned I started climbing in June, so I’m really new to this, but I managed to climb a 5.8 with lots of practice in a month. I would say at least a 5.9, and V2 for bouldering (can’t be too greedy!!)
