CUOC Announcements

-Be RESPECTFUL when climbing at St Lawrence. It is a generous allowance that we may go there and we do not want to lose the privilege. Keep your groups very small, don’t argue with the staff, don’t climb above other people, and leave things the way you found them. Go to SUNY Potsdam when possible as we actually pay to use their facility and it is closer.

-The weather is getting cold and rainy. Be sure to pack warm clothes on your adventures, and be careful when canoeing.
