Tol began rock climbing at Carleton's Rec Center his freshman year.  By his junior year he was teaching people to belay, set routes and maintain safety equipment. Upon graduating from Carleton, Tol got a job at Touchstone Climbing to set routes at six different Bay Area climbing locations, including Mission Cliffs.  Tol has climbed at locations all over the country.  His favorites are Bishop, Yosemite, and Squamish in British Columbia.

Tickets are available for the climbing event on a very limited basis (20 tickets available), and may be purchased on a first-pay,first-reserved status.
