Preference for Stephen Johnson SIG students until July 1st.  Inquiries before then are not guaranteed a response.  Do not sign up without explicit permission.

This is intended to be "bonus content" for Basic students who have demonstrated strong rock climbing ability, and who would like to try out some classic Washington Pass lines that are often posted as Intermediate climbs.  This is also intended for participants in our Washington Pass Climb-a-palooza, with South Early Winters Spire on Friday 8/9 and Kangaroo Temple on Sunday 8/11.

Depending on student interest and instructor availability, roster expansion is a possibility.
