Living City: Paul Hunter: Rock Climber
A climber’s hands are weathered with chalk and calluses — just one of the effects of spending an entire day out at the ledges. MSU chemistry professor, Paul Hunter is one of these individuals who devotes one or two days a week to rock climbing in Grand Ledge, which is the only outdoor climbing area near East Lansing. Introduced to the sport at a young age, while still living in his hometown in England, Hunter was not immediately inspired by climbing and did not become serious about the sport until he was reintroduced to it in graduate school. Some time after Hunter began teaching chemistry at MSU, he was told about the climbing facility in Grand Ledge and decided to pick up the old hobby, but being out of practice, found it to be a great challenge.
