What is the Vertical Incentive Program?
The Vertical Incentive Program, VIP for short, is a program intended for all climbers at the EKU climbing center. Climbers are provided the challenge to climb a mile or more over the duration of an academic semester. To achieve a mile's worth of climbing distance, climbers must climb the sport wall 132 times, or the bouldering wall 264 times. Once the climber has scaled the total distance of 1 mile they will be provided a commemorative sticker. For every mile after the first, climbers will be provided with additional stickers to add to their collection.
