Mountaineering

Anita on Beginner's Delight

Our Mountaineering Committee organizes rock climbing (sport, traditional, and multi-pitch), plus the occasional ice climbing, indoor wall climbing, or backcountry skiing trip.

We run trips all year. Some are day trips or after-work evening trips to local climbs, others are multi-day trips to more distant venues

If you're in doubt about your qualifications for a particular trip or what equipment you might need, ask the listed trip leader. We do have club equipment.

To register for a weekend trip, please try to contact the leader by the prior Wednesday.

Lessons Learned from a Hiking Incident

We recently received a hiking incident report from a leader in the New York-New Jersey Chapter of the AMC. The report describes an injury that occurred on a recent hike, what happened after that injury, and the essential equipment that the hike leaders and hikers did and did not have to help them through the subsequent hours spent on the trail awaiting a rescue. Below we include the original report (names have been elided). Following the report, we offer comments including a list of 10 essentials that each hiker should carry on every hike.
