6:00 PM at the Seattle Program Center.  Meet at the Friction Mountain on the north side of the building.   (It's getting darker earlier so the start time has been made earlier.  No big deal if you arrive later due to work or traffic issues.)

The Seattle Basic Refresher Clinics offer Basic Alpine Climbing graduates, and non-Mountaineer members with equivalent training and experience, the opportunity to review the skills and techniques they learned in the course.  Cost per clinic: $0
