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.

The best climber is the one who is having the most fun. — Alex Lowe

Outings

Our Outings Committee organizes general, non-technical events such as hiking, road and rail trail biking, cross-country skiing, and backpacking trips.

We have a very active list of hiking trips. Most of the year, at least two or three hikes are scheduled each week. Most hikes are on weekends, but we do have a tradition of Tuesday Hiking trips as well. Check out the schedule! Also, read our page on joining a hiking trip.
