We will arrange carpools as the date approaches, but probably many of us will rendezvous at the Issaquah Transfer Station P&R at 6:20.

This is the student sign-up for the SIG Rock Field Trip - Rock climbing with your SIG. Activities include climbing, belaying and rappelling.  Location listed is Vantage but depending on weather and other conditions it could be Peshastin Pinnacles or Mt Erie.  Also, keep March 19 open also as a weather backup.

This is a SIG activity but also is a requirement for continuation in the Basic Course.  If you cannot join us you will need to do a make-up with another SIG.  Leader can help with that if needed.

Also, room permitting, we may be able to accept students from other SIGs needing a make-up.
