Is rock-climbing a form of embodied eco-poetry? After a brief discussion with Brian, attendees will spend some time bouldering at Freestone Climbing Center,  then do a guided writing exercise about their experiences on the wall.
Admission for this workshop is free; a day-pass to climb at the gym is $18. Please come early enough to register at the front desk and sign the waiver, or follow this link to fill it out online: https://app.rockgympro.com/waiver/esign/freestone/b07266d8-7a20-49ef-89d2-599278467463

 Bouldering does not use ropes so there will be no need to have experience - just an open mind!
