There is nothing scheduled Fourth of July Weekend.

July 8 climb Mt Ernie G and return to find drinks chillin in the river by the moraine camp, and stay again at the moraine camp, and return to town Sunday morning. This trip requires glacier travel, it’s fairly long, some bushwhacking, and some fairly easy rock climbing.   Contact Carl by Thursday at 6PM if you are interested.  723-9323.


July 23.  Pirate Shore. POSTPONED to some time in August because Carl had other obligations.  Develop rock climbing along the shore between Amalga Harbor and Boy Scout Beach. We are going to clean some rocks, brush some trails, and climb some rocks. Experience isn’t necessary. If you are interested, please call  or text Carl before Friday at 7PM. 723-9323. 

The MONTHLY MEETING was postponed for a week due to weather. Sunny weather.

August 9. Past the North Douglas Boat Ramp.  The Juneau Alpine Club is having our meeting outside tomorrow evening. NOT at the Island Pub.  The calendar is empty and we should fix that. Our next monthly meeting is going to be somewhat different than other meetings because it’s going to be sunny tomorrow evening so we are meeting along the side of the road past the North Douglas boat ramp at 6:30 PM.  We will plan upcoming climbs and hikes. Bring stuff to drink or eat if you want. All are welcome. Come with ideas or to meet other mountaineering folks. Look for Carl and if you don’t know me, call or text 723-9323. I plan to look for a nice spot to build a fire.
