Students Attempt to Break Ancient Record in Rock Climb

Students Attempt to Break Ancient Record in Rock Climb

The University of Winnipeg’s 39th Annual Great Rock Climb was postponed last week due to rain, but this afternoon it’s back on.

Participants will be trying their footing at making their way up a giant wall on the front lawn of Wesley Hall, located at 515 Portage Avenue.

Teams will be competing to see who can race down the lawn and then scale the 25-ton granite “Rock of Remembrance” that sits at the front of the downtown campus.

A record set in 1979 of 9.8 seconds hasn’t been broken since.

The climb runs from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
