G&R 2020 Mountaineering:

Along with a wide range of mountaineering techniques, this course prepares students in map-reading and route finding, minimum-impact camping and first aid. Safety, judgment, leadership skills, and environmental ethics are stressed. While this course will focus on outdoor skills, expedition behavior will be part of the course curriculum. Students will learn to live and work closely with classmates. Tolerance for adversity and uncertainty, respect for others and the environment and a willingness to work hard will be critical to success. Students should expect ongoing verbal coaching and feedback throughout the course, as well as verbal performance summaries at the end of each section. This course may be repeated once in a different location. (1-5 lect.)
