Kenneth Nyhus clung to tiny nubs screwed into a wall — his eyes darted from outcrop to outcrop, searching for an option. “Uh … I think you’re gonna have to do a barn door on this move,” said Scott Davidson, the chaperone for this Outdoor Adventure Club excursion. Davidson runs the Outdoor Adventure Club (OAC) at Rim Country Middle School. Nyhus seemed to agree, allowing his right hand and leg to fall open. He then swung them rapidly into an arc to reach a hand and foot hold two feet from where he perched. Reaching the new hand and foot hold, he stuck like a glob of silly putty. Gasps of appreciation came from the middle school students sitting on the floor watching Nyhus. Quickly he executed another move by gracefully twisting a leg and then an arm to the next location.
