SIG Snow Field Trip (Alpental)
05/18/13 - 05/19/13
Mark Scheffer (Qualified Youth Leader)
Lower Alpental Parking Lot
This field trip will focus on teaching basic climbing class students the basics of snow travel, glissading, ice ax arrest, roped travel, snow anchors, winter camping, and expectations for an alpine start. Instructors will also be evaluating the fitness of the students - whether it is suitable for basic climbs.
SIG Snow Field Trip for Pitts SIG. Meet Saturday morning at 9am at the lower Alpental parking lot. This is the one that has the bridge across the creek to the lodge. Note that this is also the snow lake parking lot and it requires a trail pass to park there.
