Intermediate Climbing Class

The Washington Alpine Club's Intermediate Climbing Class offers lead rock and ice climbing experience that builds on the mountaineering skills taught in the Basic Class. This course focuses on teaching the skills necessary to become competent climbing partners in technical rock, ice, and alpine environments along with developing familiarity with leading in these environments.

The class format follows that of the Basic Climbing Class with Tuesday night lectures followed by weekend field trips.

Class size remains small to preserve a one to one, instructor to student ratio.
