October 2015 Calendar

October 1st . Indoor climbing at the Rock Dump. We will meet at the Dump at 6PM and climb. No experience necessary. We may practice lead climbing if people are inclined to do so.  Look for Carl when you get to the Dump. You can rent shoes for $3 and they will loan you a harness for free. All are welcome and no previous experience is necessary.

October 3. Lemon Creek Lakes. Carl Reese is leading a trip up Lemon Creek trail to hike to some lakes at the base of Lemon Glacier and to the north of Camp 17a. This is a bit exploratory as none of us have been there. The lakes looked spectacular from the top of Vesper Peak. None of these lakes have names and maps from 40 years ago show the area covered in glacier. This is fairly new ground.  I named them on the map below for their elevation. Better names are needed. This is a moderate climb. Anyone interested can call Carl at 723-9323 by 7PM Friday Oct 2, hikerreese@gmail.com . Sunday is a back up day if weathered out Saturday.

October 24. CHANGED TO THE GRANDCHILD PEAKS. Carl is leading a trip to the Grandchild Peaks. it’s a long day hike.  Anyone interested can call Carl at 723-9323 by 7PM Friday Oct 23. .Previously we planned Herbert Glacier but for varying reasons changed.

Sunday, November 1. Bonnie Brae Boulders and Rocks Exploration. Carl Reese is planning to hike to some boulders on North Douglas that are up hill from the Bonnie Brae neighborhood, near or on the Treadwell Ditch Trail. These boulders need some cleaning but have the potential to be another place for Juneau rock climbers with fairly easy access. Some of the boulders are large enough to be single pitch climbs.   It’s a short hike up there. We plan to clean some and to climb if possible. Anyone interested can call Carl at 723-9323 by 7PM Saturday October 31.

Wednesday, November 4. Monthly meeting at the Pizzaria Roma at 6:30 PM. We will plan upcoming climbs and hikes. All are welcome. Come with ideas or to meet other mountaineering folks.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO LEAD TRIPS
