The purpose of this seminar is to function as a capstone class for climbers who are interested in climbing more technical alpine objectives. This class will pull together a spectrum of skills and knowledge students have gained in previous courses and integrate these with new knowledge and skills to form a complete, if not exhaustive, understanding of the discipline of alpine climbing. The goal is for students who have already completed Mountain School, Ice Climbing Seminar, and Trad/Lead School, and who have expressed interest in technical mixed snow and ice climbs, to apply the multi-pitch efficiency skills and techniques they’ve learned in previous courses in a more technical alpine environment.
The course will be open to 4-6 students. The course will consist of two indoor evening sessions and one outdoor session. The indoor sessions (March 21 and 28, 2018) will cover steep climbing technique and systems and trip planning. The outdoor session will be held on the Triple Couloirs Route on Dragontail Peak or similar in late April or early May.
$50 and a commitment to assist with the following Mountain School 2018 activities:
