Basic Climbing Class

The Washington Alpine Club’s Basic Climbing Class offers a basic but comprehensive introduction to the technical mountaineering skills required to travel safely over snowfields, glaciers, and high-angle rock.  The class size is small to preserve a high instructor to student ratio.  Students in the course are exposed to the full range of climbing skills, first in a classroom setting, and then in the mountains.

Applications for 2023 class are closed. Check back in the fall of 2023 for the next class.
