Rock Climbers Attack the Wall
Maj Harold Compton
The Marine Military Academy Rock Climbers showed off their stuff on Tuesday afternoon as they put their best efforts into some videos. The majority of the team is made up of relatively new climbers so their performance was outstanding to say the least. Some of the more experienced climbers put on quite a show as evidenced by the videos. Most of the climbers have reached the point in their climbing where they are focusing more on using the smaller and more difficult holds. Of particular note is Cadet Timpany whose bouldering ability far surpasses the rest of the team. Cadet Timpany cannot rest on his laurels as the remainder of the team is quickly closing the gap on him! Cadet Smith is probably the least capable of all the team however he has already shown vast improvement since the beginning of the semester as his strength and technique are improving daily.
