Associated Students Inc. will host rock climbing classes for students and non-students at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center Friday, Jan. 31.
The rock climbing class, Climbing 201: Belay Basics, will offer attendees the opportunity to learn rock climbing basics. Knowledge in rock climbing equipment, knot tying and belay technique will be taught during the session, according to the ASI website.
“We are hoping that these classes will bring out an interest in rock climbing to those who may be unfamiliar or have not yet had much experience,” said SRWC manager William Higuchi. “One goal of the SRWC is to empower students to find some form of recreation that they will be able to take with them beyond university life.”
The classes will take place at the SRWC building from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Both students and non-students are welcome to attend. Tickets for students are $17 and $20 for non-students.
