COLUMBIA — MU’s Venture Out program is building a new high ropes course called Odyssey. The course will complement the low ropes course, rappelling tower and the Alpine Tower that MU students and members of the community have been climbing since 1994.
Venture Out coordinator Bryan Goers said Odyssey will help to reduce the traffic on the 19-year-old Alpine Tower, as well as create new educational opportunities for the organization.
“This will allow us to do intentional team-building on that next level,” Goers said.
The 100-yard-long course will place as many as 56 participants 25 to 30 feet off the ground while they work together as a group to complete obstacles.
“Now we have a piece that can push the groups a little bit further,” Goers said.
