Activity Notes

If 5-6 pitches of alpine rock climbing (up to 5.6) on sweet sweet granite sound like your cup of tea, by all means please apply.  Sorry, this is not a beginner route, so AR and ICS grads will be given priority.  But, those who have sound alpine trad experience within or without of the Mazamas without having completed those programs will also be given consideration.  Please make sure you understand this is a 6-7 hour drive each way to Northern California before applying. Leader will plan camping and communicate to those accepted.  Find Activity Financial Aid Info here:
