LA MOUNTAINEERS News:

Time to rock out! Registration is open for the 2014 Climbing School presented by the Los Alamos Mountaineers.

Students in the class will learn all the particulars of climbing equipment, essential knots, rope handling, anchor building and belaying to be able to safely and confidently explore the multitude of quality rock-climbing crags in Northern New Mexico.

The Climbing School includes classroom instruction and outdoors, hands-on opportunities to put into practice what has been taught. Instructors include many of the area’s best climbers.

Registration is required by March 15 and classes begin March 25; classes will be held at the Crossroads Bible Church at 97 East Road in Los Alamos. Climbing School tuition is $175, and includes six sessions of classroom work and six outdoor climbing sessions on local crags. Tuition includes textbooks and short sections of rope for practicing knots.

The Climbing School is limited to 25 participants, so early registration is encouraged. Registration payment reserves your spot in the school.
