6pm to 9pm.

In the basement if the weather is typical for November.  On the outside south wall in the event that we get really lucky with the weather.

I wish I could make this open to everyone, but I'm limited by student-instructor ratios, so I need to keep this to just who I've worked with before.  Thank you everyone for understanding!

The topic for tonight is TBD.  If we're in the basement, it'll probably be refreshing and somewhat expanding on skills from Basic: belay escape and crevasse rescue.
