After that, take a mountaineering course teaching snow travel, alpine rock and ice climbing, winter travel and avalanche training. That will get you the complete foundation to be able to safely enjoy anything mountains can dish out. This is true, especially if you are young (or youngish) and hope to play this alpine game for many years. Re your question, most Southern California clubs are not into the kind of classes you would like to attend (mountaineering courses) so guiding services might be the only answer.

I checked these guys out but I am looking for more of a alpine style of climbing. I enjoy rock climbing but I am more passionate about mountaineering
