Climbers (or anyone interested in learning to climb),
Just posting an announcement for an introductory climbing course being offered by the AMC in the early Spring. The Appalachian Mountain Club (www.outdoors.org) is a non-profit community that is broken into regions throughout the Northeast. Within each region, there are committees that organize outdoor weekend excursions for hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, backpacking, etc. Each year, the climbing committee of the NY-Northen NJ Chapter offers a four day introductory course for 18 lucky students that teaches what you need to know to safely set up toprope anchors and second (or follow) trad leaders on multi-pitch climbs (like those at the Gunks). In addition, if you pass the course, you will be included on the committee’s roster, instantly providing you with other safe climbing partners to hit the Gunks with on weekends and invitations to planned trips to nearby climbing areas like Rumney, the Adirondacks and Seneca Rocks…even occasionally to less nearby locations like Red Rocks and El Potrero Chico.

Richardo Cassin is one of those people who inspired you in your sleep. He is alive and amazing and surreal. Cassin Ridge on Denali is a time piece. He has done much in his beloved Dolomites.
With regret, he is not with us.
