My name is Hunter Parrott and I work at Glorieta Camps. I would like to share some info on a training opportunity we have coming up here at Glorieta Camps that may interest LAM members.

 

We are hosting a Wilderness First Responder course August 15-23. Instruction will be through SOLO (Stonehearth Open Learning Opportunities). This course is a great opportunity to learn how to appropriately care for illnesses and medical emergencies during extended care situations in the backcountry.

LAST MINUTE TRIP:   Had some requests to put this info on website, soo... We are going backpacking on a route less traveled! A group of us did this Wheeler Peak overnight backpack as a pre-trip for the 35+ mile Skyline & NM Peaks Backpack last year. It's a good fitness and skills check, provides a chance to test gear, and, of course, bagging New Mexico’s highest peak at 13,161 feet is an annual must-do for any Mountaineer. But wait! There's more! The back side approach to Wheeler has a extraordinary amount of floral and fauna, lakes and waterfalls. Oh my!

   Join Zack for a Rio Grande floating adventure. We will start at 9am on Sunday June 26th at the Red Dot trailhead, hike down to the river, continue up the river trail to the bottom of the Blue Dot. There, we will stop and enjoy lunch and inflate our floating toys/mattresses/water wings. We will then float back down to the Red Dot, wash off in the clean springs, and hike back to our cars.

South San Juan Backpack

We will leave Friday morning and drive past Platoro to the Adams Fork of the Conejos trailhead (~4 hours).  We will hike 4 miles up the Adams Fork of the Conejos to timberline on Friday afternoon and camp.  Saturday will be a day hike up Summit Peak (~6 miles round-trip).  Sunday we will hike back down to our cars and drive home.  Should be home by 6 pm on Sunday.

We have checked out the trail - and it is passable - some mud, and a few snow banks to cross - but, otherwise - AOK.

This is a day for the beginner and intermediate climbers to climb together using club ropes. 

To give new graduates of the Climbing School an opportunity to get out on the rock with local climbers, we will bring club ropes to set climbs at Gallows Edge.  The ropes will then be available to everyone to climb on.  That way, new climbers or other community members who don't have a rope can join in the fun. 

If you do not have a climbing partner, no problem!  We will all help each other.

Summer visitors are welcome!  Some old hands could be really helpful, too.  
 
In brief, this is a hike along the trail paralleling the east fork of the
Jemez river, then diverging from the trail and splashing down the river that
is in some respects a shallow box canyon.  At a pre-determined point we will
depart the river and return by the trail paralleling at some distance. This
year Zack will be leading from the front (no one can outrun Zack) and Kei will
be leading from the rear, that is to say, proceeding at an enjoyable pace and

Let's go Canyoneering.

If you are not known to the trip host, you need to convince him that you are comfortable single-strand rappelling, without assistance, up to 50' and capable of down climbing some class 4'ish rocky areas.

The chosen canyon and meeting location will be revealed to those who will go on the trip. You will get wet, at least up to your waist. Wetsuits are not required, but the water will be cold. However, we won't ever be in it very long. A set of pictures and videos will be shared with you so that you can see what the area is like.
