To be discussed at the new member meeting on September 15

Expect to leave town early Saturday morning and return in the evening on Sunday night. 

A trip sheet with a detailed schedule, driving directions, and packing list will be shared over email and at the meeting.

Since this trip is open to non-members, register directly here on this page. For all other MAC registration, use the MAC course page.

This kick-off trip serves as a try-out for prospective new members and a chance for all returning members to get reacquainted with one another over a weekend of rock climbing and/or hiking. We will have a couple groups each day going out to various crags and hikes, camping  in Icicle Canyon.

This trip is community focused and should give anyone new to MAC a good idea of what our culture is like. Interested members need not pay/commit to the club before attending this trip, and will be invited to make their decision to join or not after this trip.
