Our back country mountaineering camp is set in the spectacular Palisades of the Eastern Sierra Nevada (highest concentration of 14,000 ft. peaks in the Sierra). This comprehensive course covers the basics of alpine climbing. Learn how to use a variety of tools and techniques for climbing rock, ice and snow as well as combining skills for mixed alpine routes. After spending two full days on rock, ice and snow climbing techniques, we will put our skills to the test by attempting a 13,000 to 14,000 ft peak in the Palisades via a 3rd/4th class route.
