At long last, the Rock Climbing wall is complete. After much hard work and three years of adding additional wall sections and climbing holds the project is finished. This year, the shop class gained experience in wall construction as they measured, cut and fastened the last sections of the wall, which completed the cave section of our wall. The cherry on top of the project was the new unified safety mat that we purchased thanks to an Excellence in Education grant and a very generous donation from Grand Marais Women’s Club. With this new mat our climbing wall is safe as ever and enters the realm of legitimate Bouldering walls. A special thanks is due to the graduated classes of 2010 and 2011 who volunteered their time to raise the initial funds for this project. Later this year, we will hold our first Bouldering Competition as students develop the skills, strength and agility needed to rock climb.
