Join MAA members for a winter climb and training on Castle Peak. This is a moderately steep, technical winter ascent of the highest point in the Donner Pass area near Lake Tahoe. Summiting the pinnacle will require ascending a fixed line and rappelling off the backside. Participants will receive training and gain experience in ROCK 2, SNOW 1, SKI 1 and MTN 2. Prior experience snow climbing, snowshoeing / skiing, ascending fixed lines and rappelling is recommended, as well as fitness to handle a long day out! Loaner gear may be available. We have room for 10. Hope to have you out with us!
