Description

Hey guys,
I am looking for climbing partners to climb local peaks such as Adams, Rainier, Cascades with me in early 2013 through September. I want to build a climbing resume and need some buddies. I am entry level. I am taking a beginning mountaineering course in May. My husband is entry level as well and will be climbing with me. So if there any of you beginners out there or just some climbers needing an extra climber, Please let me know.

Join the Seattle Mountaineers if you haven't already. Their classes are excellent and reasonable on price.

Two spots left in this class. They will not last long:

I'd take that class and the next level in snowshoeing this winter - you'll learn good skills, meet people, and be better prepared to climb in the summer. However if you can get into an Alpine Scrambling class instead, then do that. BEST would be to get into a Basic Climbing Class. Check the schedules - don't sign up if you can't commit to the lectures and field trips........

They also offer backcountry skiing classes - they'd work also.

Unfortunately it looks like the Seattle chapter Basic Climbing Class is full, but might get into a class with another chapter like Tacoma, Olympia, Everett, Bellingham, etc. The Seattle class is outstanding and a lot of fun.


If one of the branches has openings in the "scrambling" class I'd take that too......

Have fun.

The kids Seattle mountaineers also put together one of the best YouTube videos on setting up a z-pulley system for crevasse rescue. Just search on that term and you'll find it. Really well done.
