Seattle Basic Alpine Climbing Conditioner

Field trip: Basic Alpine Climbing Course

Seattle Basic Alpine Climbing Conditioner - Mount Si Main Trail

Snap a picture of the sunset to meet your conditioning requirements. The sun is scheduled to set at 7:29pm on March 25th. If you carry a pack meeting the weight requirements and snap a picture of the sunset from the top of Mt. Si you will be able to take pride in having met the conditioning requirements for the Basic Alpine Climbing Course. We will also have the added benefit of enjoying a full moon rising (weather permitting) on this outing.
