[Music] Hi, do you have any questions? Is it free to climb here? Well actually, as you can see here before you can climb you need to take a belay clinic, which we offer here. If you are a student, it’s ten dollars. If you are faculty or staff, it is $15. So if I bring a friend, can they come climb too? Well Sarah, I’m glad you asked. The belay clinic certifies you and only you. If your friend wants to climb, they can not unless they have also taken the belay clinic. However, if your friend does want to climb, they can boulder outside. Well Sarah, this is the bouldering wall. It is 16 feet tall. As you can see, it requires no gear at all. It’s nice because you can bring a friend and doesn’t require any prior certification. If you fall, you fall on these nice comfy pads. Comfy! Community Events! Here at the climbing wall, we have some community events. One of the ones we are really pushing is the Mile High Club. So, every semester, if you have climbed roughly 126 laps, which is one full climb up the wall it counts as one lap, which you can log at the desk with one of the staff members you see here. After the semester if you climb all 126, you get a cool, awesome free shirt. Also, another event we are really hoping to do twice this semester is a climbing wall movie night. So, roughly two time out of the semester we will choose one really rad rock climbing movie to get everyone super psyched and we will show it either outside if it is really nice, or at the ORC. So we’ll see you guys there. If you haven’t had time to get certified, or you want to come climb with your friends, we also have something called Try Climb that happens the third Thursday of every month. What this is is that you and your uncertified friends can come and climb. We will belay you. It’s a great chance to come check out the climbing wall and really convince you that you want to get certified. We also have Ladies Night, which is the same thing but only for ladies. It’s awesome, come climb with your fellow female climbers. No guys allowed. It’s a good time Also, every year around the first or second weekend in November, we hold Boulder Bash, our annual climbing bouldering competition Every year, we use this event to raise money for the Southeastern Climbers Coalition. So, get stoked on the boulder comp, come get a cool shirt, and possibly win a prize Also, for those of you looking to get a little better in your climbing technique, every Tuesday and Thursday night at 8:00pm in the bouldering courtyard, we have a free technique and training clinic Community Events! Whooo! [Music]
