  2. The Washington Alpine Club is now taking applications for its 2014 Basic Climbing Class through Friday, Jan. 31. Know of anyone who is interested in a fun yet comprehensive introduction to mountaineering? Please have them apply! This 13-week class covers backcountry skills, rock climbing, snow/glacier travel, and culminates in a climb of Mt Baker. More information about the application process and the class can be found at http://wacclass.org
  3. Just wanted to let folks know that applications for the 2013 class will open December 15th, and close January 31st. The Washington Alpine Club's Basic Climbing Class offers a basic but comprehensive introduction to the technical mountaineering skills required to travel safely over snowfields, glaciers, and high-angle rock. The class size is small to preserve a high instructor to student ratio. Students in the course are exposed to the full range of climbing skills, first in a classroom setting, and then in the mountains. The 2013 class will run from March 19th through June 16th. Detailed information about the class and application instructions are available at http://wacclass.org.
  4. WTB- sleeping bag (0-20 degree) and pad

    I have a Marmot Helium sleeping bag. It's a 15 degree bag that I've used for just over a year. http://www.rei.com/product/762528/marmot-helium-15-sleeping-bag It's in great shape. No rips, tears or stains. I'll toss in a Thermarest Prolite Plus, size regular. All for $200.
  5. My foot doctor suggested I try a different brand (wider toe box) to alleviate some foot pain I was experiencing. So I switched to Scarpa brand boots and now I'm selling my very lightly used La Sportiva Nepals. They are a size EU 43 and have only been worn four or five times. They are in excellent condition and a great winter mountaineering boot. These boots sell for $475 new. I'm asking $325.
