Kelly and Zabette have owned and operated the Vashon Recess Lab Climbing Wall since 2016. Having two active children can be trying, especially during the winter as many parents can attest to! So they knew that a climbing wall would bring some sanity to their house and hopefully others as well.
They love that climbers of all ages come and get their yayas out on the wall!

In the back of their closet are Halloween costumes.
