Rock Climbing Trip to Grand Ledge
On the last Friday of every month starting Aug. 30, students are invited to join the Climbing Center on a series of rock climbing trips. Participants will travel to Grand Ledge on Friday to spend the day exploring the area’s variety of rope climbs, averaging 30-40 feet tall. Participants must register through Seminar (www.gvsu.edu/seminar) every Wednesday before a trip takes place to reserve a spot. The cost is $5 per person with a shoe and harness rental, and free to those with their own rock climbing gear. Participants will meet in Oak Park in Grand Ledge at 10 a.m. and the day will commence from there.
