It is time to plan for Summer Climbs 2017.
This thread is a starting point for organizing the adventures for the new-grads from the 2017 class. If you wish to organize a climb, please include details such as:
– Who is the organizer
– Dates (may be flexible)
– Intensity (“tempo-de-sloth” vs. “tempo-de-Begasse”)
– how many people (new-grads and experienced)
– any special notes.
The trips can be anything from cragging in the evening, a simple day climb, to a multi-night adventure.June 5, 2017 at 10:31 pm #7509

As always, coordinate with the trip organizer. Not all trips are suitable for all climbers. When in doubt about the suitability of the trip for your abilities, do your research.
The focus of the Summer Climbs program is to give the Basic Climbing Class graduates more opportunities to hone their skills.June 7, 2017 at 12:07 am #7514Participant

For those who haven’t been there yet, Camp Muir, Mount Rainier, June 24th. A recommended preview before your summit attempt via DC route. We will carry full-gear list packs. Trip will include a stop at the pinnacle of Anvil Rock for some dramatic views.
This is a 15-hour Seattle-to-Seattle day trip. I plan to be on the road by about 5am. Start hiking about 8am. Be back at the car about 5pm and home by 8pm.June 8, 2017 at 10:40 pm #7532Participant
