Basic Mountaineering Course

May 27th 2016


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 to
participate in
this course.
(the link will open in a new
tab or window).

Signup order (via the calendar) has no
significance for this
course as we use your application submission date
instead. Our
club’s Skills
and Training Coordinator
will review and
tentatively
approve applications during the first two weeks of
April,
following which you will be notified.

You should download and read the course handout
ahead of time.
