Mountaineering School

July 27 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $100.00

Join Hiking the Ozarks Founder, Dan Nash, for the annual Mountaineering School-in-a-day to learn essential mountaineering skills.  This is a one-of-a-kind experience in the Midwest. Similar classes are offered out West, but not here in the Ozarks and this class sells out every year. It is particularly suitable for those more serious backpackers, or those with interest in climbing a mountain.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
50% of all proceeds from this class are donated directly
to the Sherpa people in the Mt Everest region via
our affiliate office in Kathmandu, Nepal
Registered participants will also receive a 10% discount on any Satori Adventures & Expeditions trip booked* within 30 days of the Mountaineering Class.
Topics covered in the Mountaineering Class include:  How to rescue yourself from a crevasse fall using a prusik knot, how to rappel, and how to Jumar up a rope with an ascender while climbing, and also address mountaineering clothing and equipment.
* Although we cover mountaineering “basics,” this is an INTENSIVE class and you will be required to rappel a 70-foot cliff, climb a 25-foot rope, walk along cliff edges and learn mountaineering safety practices.
* All participants will be required to sign a waiver. NO WAIVER, NO CLASS.

REGISTRATION IS STRICTLY LIMITED TO 25 ATTENDEES TO ENSURE EVERYONE HAS A QUALITY EXPERIENCE. ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
