Don't give this "holier than thou" shit about being a grunt. You chose this life. Most students actually study, especially when they're paying thousands per year for tuition , so quit watching your Hollywood trash and get a clue.

You beat me to the post, but I was thinking the exact same thing.

As a prior grunt, a veteran, someone who used his GI bill to pay for college, and now a climbing gym owner, I would be more likely to give college students discounts.

Actually, I give neither discounts here. It's not an issue for our location and or our clientele.

Even as a E2, I had more money in the Army than in college. I spent my time in the Army, then relocated and lived lived on Okinawa surrounded my Marines and Air Force, service members are pretty good about spending all they make.

If you already know how to climb and have a reliable climbing partner, why drive 45 minutes to save 10 bucks on a monthly membership. Pass their test, watch other members and decide who is safe and not safe for yourself, and enjoy the great facility. Who knows, maybe you can bring change to how things are done by showing the owners how concerned you are.

Would be interesting to hear or see the gym's side of the story after reading your observations. Some of what you wrote about climbing tells me you don't completely understand climbing either.
