They met by twist of fate. They both showed up late to rock climbing class while at IU (uhm.. coolest class ever!) and were partnered together by default. In rock climbing there is a phrase often used to ensure that your partner is safe and to let them know that you are there to support them. “On belay?” the climber will ask. “Belay on” the belayer will call. Total trust of your partner is required and together you work to help one another climb mountains.
