The Chemeketan climbing program provides a variety of activities, training, and climbs ranging from those suitable for first year climbers to more technical climbs for experienced mountaineers. All climbs on the schedule, including the climb school, are qualifying trips for Chemeketan membership. Completion of the Chemeketan climb school, or an equivalent climb school experience as approved by the leader of each individual climb, is required for participation in Chemeketan climbs.
Chemeketan climbs are limited in party size. All wilderness area activities are limited to no more than 12 participants by the Forest Service, and most climbs will have fewer depending on the nature of the climb and the preferences of the climb leader. Climbers interested in a particular climb should contact the leader as soon as possible to sign up in advance of the climb. Details of Chemeketan climbs are listed in the Upcoming Climbs list below and the climbing calendar located here.
The Climb Committee co-chairs are Michael Gurley (Michael.Gurley67@gmail.com) and Ellen Gradison (firstname.lastname@example.org).
