From Our Members
Unfortunately, it is VERY difficult to get into a training class. It appears there are numerous people in this group, which I am excited to be part of, but there doesnt appear to be enough "basic" training classes for all of us whom are interested.

For a group of ordinary folks looking to make mountaineering the safest and most enjoyable experience, it doesn't get any better than this!
