I wanted to take this moment to plug a fantastic club on campus. Last year a rock climbing club was started at USD and it's doing some pretty wonderful things. The mission statement of the club is: "The Rock Climbing Club is a new student organization with the purpose of uniting USD students who have an interest in climbing. It will provide a fun and rewarding environment for beginners and experts alike. Students will be able to hone their abilities and improve their confidence with fellow learners of the “vert." This club will help test climbers mentally and physically, while practicing safe technique. Members will have the opportunity to get involved in the climbing community and explore some of the country’s premier climbing areas. "
Last week they went to Joshua Tree for a weekend trip. Students of all climbing backgrounds converged on this premier Southern California climbing destination. Here are some pictures from their adventure.
If you want to get involved with the club you can add the FaceBook page or email Jonathan at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are going to be great opportunities this fall to have a blast with the climbing club.
