Holding on to history

A student climbs Tuesday on the rock wall in the Recreation Center. The wall has been drawing climbers since it was built in 1980. According to the guidebook “Vertical Heartland,” the climbing wall was one of the first indoor walls built in America and had holds made out of mahogany wood that have since been updated to plastic. The wall is open from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
