Climb Leader Application

If you are interested in volunteering as a climbing trip leader, fill out this form and we will forward it to the volunteer committee closest to you. They will review it and help you begin the process of familiarizing you with our guidelines, policies, and minimum standards for climbing with the Mountaineers.

Climb Leader

The look on people's faces when you get them outside and show them places they've never seen is often cited as one of the best rewards for our volunteers. If you are interested in contributing to the mission of The Mountaineers by organizing and leading climbing trips, please let us know by completing this application. We obviously have to ensure that every leader meets some critical baseline standards and this application will provide our committee with relevant information about your goals and experience. One of our volunteers will follow up with you on the next steps to get you certified as a Mountaineers Climb leader!

Thank you for your interest!
