Mountain Day

Hey you, listen here!
Now approaches the best day of the year.
Mountain Day, as some call it,
is no time to sit.
With the air smelling like spring,
staying inside is not an easy thing.
It’s time to celebrate being outside.
Maybe there will even be a slip ‘n slide.

So get ready for sleeping bag races
and smiles on your faces.
Human bouldering and food art
are only the start.
Ziplining with Zephyr
is going to be the coolest adventure ever.
Iris will teach you all to tie-dye,
making April 18th a great Fri-dye.
Look for us on the Prez Lawn from 11 to 2.

This day would not be complete without you there, too.Mountain Day

JASON KRUK

Jason Kruk
World-famous alpinist Jason Kruk is presenting at Tufts! Jason is best known for the first fair-means ascent of Cerro Torre in Patagonia (and subsequent global controversy after removing the 125 bolts that scarred the route). He’s also a paraglider-flying ski-mountaineering dog-loving stunt-rigging Canadian vegan, and generally rad guy.

And one time, he pooped his pants while climbing.

Come hear him talk about all of it:
Tues, 1/28 at 8pm

Free with Tufts ID, $5 other students, $10 general
