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.

The event was hosted at Vertical Ventures climbing gym in St. Petersburg. Though tickets are typically $18 for a single per person, Vertical Ventures is offering buy one get one free opportunities for students who come in pairs on Fridays from 8:00 p.m. to midnight and Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., dropping the cost to $9.

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.
