Your climb will be rewarded with unique rock formations and cliffs along the way. Incredible vistas await those who venture up the renovated firetower. Bring along a small pack with lunch, snacks, and plenty of water for the day (2 liters). Sturdy hiking boots are highly recommended. The cost is $15 and includes equipment and transportation. Sign up in the Outdoor Pursuits office, Rec Center Room 10, by Thursday, Sept. 26. For more information, call the Outdoor Pursuits office at 777-6414 or go online.
