Go climb a wall

Sunday, June 22, 2014   by: Staff



Lake Superior State University student Andrew Jackson summits the area's only indoor climbing wall, in LSSU's Student Activity Center, Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, on June 20.

The newly-opened wall is 26 feet tall by 21 feet wide (8 x 6 ½ meters), with colour-coded routes plotted by challenge level.

Summer hours are 5-8 p.m., Monday-Thursday.

Admission is free for LSSU students and staff, $3 per person for the public.

The wall can be reserved off-hours by small groups for events such as birthday parties, church activities, Scouting projects, or workforce team-building.

Booking rates depend on group size.

Contact wall manager Paul Tumey at 828-310-3057 for details.

Kids must be at least six years old to climb.

Parents must be present and sign a waiver for minors under 17.

LSSU will open a Regional Outdoor Center later this year, stocked with a variety gear that students can rent.

Jackson is a senior mechanical engineering major from Cheboygan, Michigan.
