Priority goes to students that need a climb that were previously waitlisted on one of my rock climbs. Once the climb opens, anyone may request permission per the instructions below

Please email Peter with the following information:

  1. Tell us what SIG you are in and whether you need  a  rock climb to graduate.
  2. Read the leader notes and send the answer to the question at the end.

Priority is given to a) those waitlisted on one of my previous rock climbs and need rock credit to graduate b) 2nd year students that need a rock climb to graduate, and c) students of any branch that need a rock climb to graduate.

We will accumulate responses until 6:00 PM, Monday, July 29th and then randomly assign spots based on the priority described above (you don't have to be the fastest clicker in the west to get on this climb).



All participants should be familiar with the route. Look for information on the Mountaineers site, SummitPost, PeakBagger, WTA, and guide books.


We will keep a moderate pace

The question for permission:
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
