Eckerd’s climbing club offered the opportunity to go climbing with professors on April 12. At 8:00 p.m. transportation for students left from the Zeta complex. The event was a perfect opportunity for students to start a new hobby with their favorite professor.

Renting climbing shoes is optional for an additional $5, as well as chalk for $2, raising regular prices to $25 for a single and $30 for groups of two. The event was led by the climbing club’s Club Head Noah Lynn.
