Basic Mountaineering Course

May 24th 2019


Description:

Our basic mountaineering course is designed for
new club members (novice climbers/mountaineers),
to learn the skills necessary for safe travel in
mountainous terrain.

Mountaineering is a skill that takes years to
become really experienced at, so our goal for
this
courses is to simply make you confident enough
with the basic skills. Following that, you can
go
out and practice yourself, as well as continue
to
learn from others on the various trips and camps
the club puts on.

In addition to signing up via
the calendar, you
must also fill
out a Course Application Form

Signup order (via the calendar) has zero
significance for this course, as we use your
application submission date instead. Our team
will
review and approve applications as fast as we
can,
following which you will be notified.

Lastly, you should download and read the course
handout
ahead of time, and read through the course
itinerary
