Rock Climbing with Matt Wilder '97
Accomplished rock climber and alum Matt Wilder '97 returned to campus on Friday, Sept. 28, where he gave a climbing workshop and presentation to members of PA’s Outdoor Pursuits program (formally known as Search & Rescue). At the Josh Miner climbing wall, Wilder gave impromptu demos, helped hone students’ climbing skills, and offered tips on balance and proper foot placement. Wilder's inspirational presentation in Kemper Auditorium titled "Bouldering Above Gear: A Synthesis of Distant Disciplines," focused on his various travels and climbing adventures, and on the importance of challenging yourself both mentally and physically.
