Basic Alpine Climb - Mount Constance/South Chute

The Basic Alpine climb is prioritized for Kitsap branch members. Other branches, please email your interest and I will place you on the offline waitlist. If seats are available, and there are no Kitsap branch members on the online waitlist, I will confirm your availability then manually add you to the climb.

This is a challenging alpine climb.  Third highest peak in the Olympics. 30 miles round trip but will feel like a 100-mile ultra marathon with significant exposure.
