Taking advantage of the abundant snow and ice this winter, eight Norwich students recently tried their hand at ice-climbing in Bolton Quarry in nearby Bolton Valley, Vermont. Ice climbing guide Josh Bossin (pictured in blue) led the outing for the first-time climbers. The day-long event was sponsored by the Norwich University College Activities Board through the university’s Shaw Outdoor Center. The event was the latest in an ongoing series of programs designed to expose students to new outdoor activities or build on existing climbing and cold weather survival skills.
