While he was no Narrie resident there were very few things in the world that the young aspiring athlete couldn't ignore. A discount on food, given his situation, had been the largest godsend of it all and organized activities that had been geared towards most likely keeping a healthier lifestyle amongst the populace. Inspiring them and incentivizing, not unlike how some coaches managed their times in his opinion. Tyson could tell the difference between those that had been accustomed to the activities and those that had still had been learning, finding their place and mostly by how key individuals had been standing on the side assisting and teaching. 

As for himself, it hadn't been his first rodeo in engaging the war between the agility of man against the well placed design of the walls, often finding it as an opportunity to keep his body strength up in an extremely unique way even if it hadn't been done often. He made his way over towards one of the taller ones, something about it called to him, demanded that it be challenged by the young daredevil. What more could he do than oblige it of the call it seemed to sang in its imposing statue? That had been when he started to sit down onto the ground, hands checking along his sneakers, tightening the laces and affixed the footwear to settle around his ankle comfortably to avoid any serious injuries through inadequate safety. 

Then he started to pull finger-less gloves out of a sports bag, pulling them on to his hands and tightening the Velcro latches right against his wrists and firmly double tapped them into place with a smoothed rub that followed right after. The young man huffed to himself taking in the air and pushed himself up from the ground giving a free stretches to make loosen up his limbs, surely enough time to get his body prepared while he awaited for a good opportunity to approach the wall. 

It looked like it'd been a good turn out too, which seemed like a positive outcome in his books.

People drifted away because of their lives. It was a fact Alex had been having some trouble contending with lately, much like her brother. As a Squib, she was quite used to being solitary growing up in most regards; it was still quite jarring, however, when each person within her circle of friends went their own way, inadvertently pulling themselves apart from everyone. It was what was occurring with her little group, and she was equal parts to blame, having gotten a stress-prone job that ate at most of her time. However, for once, she had a full weekend off. Wanting to actually do something about her problems rather than just complain, the young adult took her car late Friday afternoon and drove all the way to Narragyambie. It was a longer drive than she'd like it to be, but it was as good of an opportunity as any to make a surprise visit to the rest of her family.

Of course, that didn't mean she'd spend every waking moment in either the Collins or Lin households - she was still the type to need a refresher. It often was the simple act of walking that cleared her mind and spirit, and as such, the Squib had decided to take a trip to the Narrie Lakes: she had spotted a couple flyers of some sort of event called 'Just Do It June', its catchiness appeasing her naturally curious nature. It was the perfect excuse to explore the little town she had spent the better part of her teenage years in, and there was a strong possibility she'd come across someone she knew given how lively the event seemed to be, regardless of biting cold.

The drummer eventually strolled over to her destination to survey the various activities available to the populace. She could spot a playground nearby, as well as a few food carts to provide visitors with healthy street food; but a colossal structure almost immediately caught her eye, drowning out every other potential avenue for fun - a gigantic climbing wall. She lacked the proper equipment to climb it, but being the daredevil that she was, she was considering doing so unassisted.

"Well, you're a sight for sore eyes." She commented to the wall as she walked up to one person she did recognize standing just before it, warming up to take the challenge on as well. "Oh, and, hi to you too." She joked once speaking to Tyson, poking fun at the prior initial hostility from when they had been introduced by Jamie. She wasn't fully comfortable around the man just yet, but it was a fair assessment to say he was a level above the rest of the strangers inhabiting the area at that moment.

"You came prepared." She stated the obvious with a hint of respect in her tone. "Do you do this whole climbing gig often?"

Temperature didn't seem to matter to the young man, though in truth he'd been exercising pure will in ignoring the drop itself even with the clothes he had on that covered him well enough to block out the minor chills that had whipped through the usual season around this time. As he started to stand up to double check everything: Clothing bound tightly to himself to avoid snags, gloves properly held tightly to his wrists without loosening, and that his shoes were properly fitted and tied tightly without a stray lace that could trip him up, he spotted someone whom had been mildly familiar which caught most of his attention while he went into auto-pilot mode checking each sector of himself. 

A smooth chuckle emitted from him as she greeted him in a joking manner. "Yo', what's up?" Of the few people that came to mind that he would've ran into today? She hadn't been on the list, which made it quite surprising for him. Not an unpleasant one, even with the hostile personality that seemed to whip up from her on their first meeting. It'd been something he'd been used to ever since he'd met Violet before their unfortunate split. "Gotta' say, wasn't expectin' to run into ya'. Jamie? Maybe." His upper-classman had a far busier schedule in comparison to himself which gave it a teeter on whether or not he'd actually run into the older male or not. 

Tyson's head shook lightly in denial. "Nah, not as often as I'd like. Once in a while, some old gear and stuff. I actually bought some for the Auror program since I wasn't sure just how physical intensive it would've been, ya' know? Had to make sure my basis were covered." A casual shrug flows from him, as if it were a normal thought to be that highly prepared for a class without gaining any official syllabus. "Even then, good investment it seems." Then a grin formed on his face as he glanced towards the towering wall that had been an eye-catcher even from a single cursory glance. "What about you? Just getting out for some fresh air or planning to test the limits of ya' strength and climbing this monstrosity? Have some extra gloves if ya' need 'em. Helps to make sure your hands don't take too much pressure, grabbing the wrong way could cause some pretty harsh effects."

Not that he had to worry about that personally, his hands had been so calloused and rough that it would've taken a hell of a lot of pressure to even break through to that kind of point. Though one could never be too aware of would be left behind with so many people and so many hands running along the wall's studs.

"Nah, he's too busy sucking off his management team. You get me instead." Alex couldn't resist the stab at her brother's passive demeanor regarding the blatant mistreatment. It got under her skin far too easily, as she wanted to protect her twin from them; but, he had signed a contract. He willingly signed a contract that put him in such an egregious position. 'Fucking idiot.'

That word wasn't strange to her. Auror. Her cousin had brought it up himself a couple months before when he pondered joining the program. Before that, she knew her family had some sort of passing underlying connection to the job, although she wasn't sure what it was exactly - she hadn't bothered to ask any of them, not being really connected to the Wizarding World in general to such an extent even basic concepts were alien to her at times. Although, she did have the knowledge that it was a dangerous job. Tyson had seemed like a very fit individual to her, wall climbing notwithstanding, so by all accounts she held the belief that he was more physically apt for the task than Cole was.

"I was curious about this place when I saw the flyer, s'why I'm here. Didn't expect a wall though." The drummer looked up the structure until her gaze met the top of the climbing wall. "Never actually did much climbing myself, but, how hard can it be?" Despite her words, she was quite aware that a misstep could cost her dearly in the situation. She decided to remove her coat (the chill made her momentarily regret her decision) and set it down by Tyson's bag, not bothering to ask if it was okay. She reached into it for the extra gloves he had mentioned, putting them on - given that his hands were larger than hers they were quite loose, but it would have to do.

"Gotcha. Sounds straightforward enough. Lead the way, King Amateur Climber." She spoke while taking a hold of the safety harness.
