Approximately 8:00 am-2pm. Location TBA. Participants must have basic knowledge and skills of mountaineering (e.g. how to use crampons and ice axe). Instruction donation - $20/person. Limit 15 participants. Registration is required. Priority will be given to WMC members. Max 15. Registrants will receive more detailed info including the list of required and optional gear.
