Youth in Mountaineers Adventure Club must do a multipitch climb before getting on an alpine climb, so they have the experience of cleaning, belay transitions etc… Lots of volunteer help is needed!  There will be some who are single-pitch cragging, so we need help for that AND we REALLY NEED rope guns!! (rope guns should be VERY COMFORTABLE leading 5.6/5.7 trad) 

This trip has prerequisites - lead climbing proficiency (attended at least two climbing workshops or makeups, and passed lead climbing test / received lead climbing card) and multi-pitch workshop required (minimum requirement. Participants readiness for multi-pitch climbs will be determined on a case by case basis).
