It’s 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 — or cliffs 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.
The Mountaineers Club was created in the late 1950s. The first climbing school was developed by the Mountaineers in 1957.
The class consists of 12 sessions — six in a classroom learning the fundamentals and six in the mountains of New Mexico to practice on crags.
“The school will take the students to White Rock Canyon, or some places in the Sandias,” Climbing School Director Ron Morgan said. “We won’t go to places like Diablo Canyon in this class because it takes a bit more skill to go there.”
The school keeps track of the graduates who will continue climbing at a more advanced level. Morgan himself took the class several years ago and has continued climbing with the Mountaineers.
