    Default Kevin climbs and then get off the wooden wall

    In the sentence:

    Kevin climbs and then get off the wooden wall.

    Is the grammar correct?

    Thanks for your time.

    This sounds like an event that happened in the past. If so, it should be "Kevin climbed and then got off the wooden wall".

    Dear Kevin

    First of all, thanks for your answer.

    The event is happening in the present and is being narrated by a third person.

    In that case... How can I express the actions?

    Can I express both actions in his present tense?

    Thanks for your time.

    I told you that here, Nikitus. We shouldn't have to repeat ourselves.
