Students needing a rock summit to graduate basic will have priority, regardless of the order of signup. Please email leader if you still need a summit - I'll also check your online status, but hearing from you is easiest.

Leader will be climbing Sept 9-12.  On 9/13 I will review signup and let you know who is on the climb and the wait list.  Our system will automatically generate emails saying you are on the roster or the wait list, but the definitive roster will be the one I send you on Tues, Sept 13.  

Leaders permission is NOT required.  Open to all basic students and grads, but preference given to those needing summit to graduate.

I am pleased to tell you we have a strong pair of rope leaders.  Expect an enjoyable day.
