Basic Mountaineering

Contact: Gordan Thibedeau

This course teaches participants the skills needed to safely hike and climb mountains up to 14,000 feet elevation in most weather conditions.

This course is typically taught in the spring and summer starting in April with lectures and field trips that are completed by the end of May. It is demand-based and not taught every year. At the end of the course, students must schedule and complete a climb sometime between June and August.

If you are interested in becoming a mountaineer, we encourage you to contact Gordan for more details and to be placed on the interested students list.
