Summit views are always spectacular, but they are especially appreciated after an exhilarating and exposed ascent, without the aid of marked trails. We begin this course with an introduction to equipment and clothing for warm weather adventures and the essentials of trip planning and navigation.

After this introduction, we’re off to a nearby small peak, where we’ll practice using map, compass, and altimeter to find our way, off-trail, to the base of an open slide. Without getting into the complexities of technical rock climbing, we’ll introduce techniques that permit an efficient and safe ascent. As we climb, we’ll work on your movement technique and we’ll show you how a rope can be employed to protect you on the more exposed sections.

When heavy rains saturate the thin soils of steep mountainsides massive landslides are occasionally triggered, exposing long sections of clean rock, perfectly suited for climbing.
