June 22. Rope and rappelling skills practice. Cliffs on Fritz Cove Road. Pete Boyd is leading a practice of rappelling skills including more advanced ways of backing up your rap. You will need a harness and ATC at a minimum. Contact Pete by 7PM June 21st prb518@gmail.com . He needs to know in advance how many people are coming. This is weather dependent.

Future Plans. We discussed a trip to Split Thumb this summer, an overnighter to Upper Nugget Basin this summer, an overnighter to Mount Ernest Gruening this summer, and a climbing/ski trip up Mount Wrather next winter. The dates for these have not been set. ???????????????????????????????
