On Saturday, February 11, freshman Rori K. and sophomore Lulu T. competed, along with Grier English teacher Mr. Tony Lang, in the 7th annual Milton Meltdown at a rock climbing gym in Milton, Pennsylvania.
The Milton Meltdown is a bouldering competition. In the bouldering style of rock climbing, climbers do not use any harnesses or ropes and remain at a lower height on the rock wall. While not required, most climbers opt to wear tight-fitting climbing shoes that provide better grip.
Mr. Lang reported that both Grier students,"climbed really well and sent some really hard problems climbing in the intermediate division. They had a really good time and represented Grier well."
