- Monthly Program
Monthly Slide Shows: Our club's Program Committee is quite active in bringing a variety of presentations to Los Alamos. At our monthly meetings you will see inspiring photos and hear the stories behind them. In addition to featuring personal adventures from local club members, we occasionally feature professional climbers and other speakers on a variety of outdoor and mountain activities. The Mountaineers have toured several of the world's highest peaks, not only from the perspective of professional mountain guides, but also from several club members. We've heard topics ranging from adventure race competitors (e.g. the Eco-Challenge) to photographic exhibits on the Valle Grande National Preserve and Artic National Wildlife Refuge. We've also seen wonderful talks on canyoneering, river rafting, trekking, ice climbing, peak bagging, and more. See for yourself and join us at Fuller Lodge!
Club Trips: Join your fellow club members on any of the numerous hiking, backpacking, scrambling, rock-climbing, ice-climbing, peak-bagging, skiing, and biking trips offered throughout the year.
Top Roping: Although the club seldom schedules top roping sessions, our Top Rope Dictator schedules community top roping, and we include his schedule on our TOP ROPING page. We also link to Mark Mathis's schedule for weekend climbing. The top-roping sessions are scheduled every Tuesday and Thursday evening from March thru October. This is a great way to stay in shape and meet potential climbing partners.
Climbing School: Learn what technical rock climbing is all about. We will teach you the fundamentals of technical climbing and climbing technique with a strong emphasis on safety. (Registration fee required, fee includes membership if you are not already a member)
Trip Leader Awards: The club will recognize trip leaders as described here.
Web Pages: Hey, we have a great web site! Get club announcements, advertisements for upcoming club trips, trip reports, and links to tons of pictures, gear reviews, climbing beta, etc. on the club web pages.
Become an Author: Write illustrated trip reports by adding your trip report and pictures as a comment. Leaders can add information directly into the original trip description.
