TRURO - Local boys and girls waiting for a match through the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization got some climbing tips Wednesday morning.
The 'littles' spent some time on the Kohler Klimbing Wall at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre with Laurie Skreslet. Skreslet is the first Canadian to climb the summit of Mount Everest and was on hand for some belaying.
Skreslet, who is also an author, is one of three motivational speakers participating in the Nova Scotia Co-operative Council's 'No Limits' event Wednesday night, which also features Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.
While belaying the youngsters, Skreslet gave them pointers on where to move and put their hands and feet, all while reassuring them that they were safe on the rope.
'No Limits' begins at 6:30 p.m. The event is in celebration of the council's 65th anniversary.
