Must be in decent shape. Must be able to self arrest. Indicate if you have attended Climb School - what year and who were your instructors. Please also indicate if you have previous mountaineering experience. First timer are welcome and encouraged. Email if you would like to be an assistant or co-lead this climb.

Please email me your questions and details at or you are welcome to add it as a comment on this page.

Priority will go for this year's and past year's students. Especially the one who also went a half climb with SAC. Half climb is highly recommended for first time Hood Climber. I will start approving participants after climb school (May 6th) to give this year's students the chance to apply for it.

Noel, I made it up with Andy this weekend, so I'll let someone else take my spot for the 16th. Thanks, and good luck to the group!

Noël (leader) answers:
Awesome! Good job!

Katherine says:
Sadly I injured my back lifting this week and am unlikely to recover in time. I’ll give up my spot for someone more able. Sad to miss this.

Mika says:
Get better soon, Kate! You will be missed.

Carl says:
Can we get any more detail yet regarding a planned schedule? Meeting time and location at least?
