Basic Climbing Class
The Washington Alpine Club's Basic Climbing Class offers a basic but comprehensive introduction to the technical mountaineering skills required to travel safely over snowfields, glaciers, and high-angle rock. The class size is small to preserve a high instructor to student ratio. Students in the course are exposed to the full range of climbing skills, first in a classroom setting, and then in the mountains.
We encourage you to explore the website to learn more about the class. In addition, if you know anyone who has taken the class, talk to them to get a feel for what to expect. If you have any other questions, please contact the cochairs at email@example.com.
The 2013 class is now in progress. Applications for the 2014 class are expected to start in December 2013.
