Tioga Pass area. Open to all skill levels. Saturday: ice axe & crampon training & practice in a controlled environment on the Dana Glacier, which is a couple miles cross country from Tioga Pass. Previous ice axe & crampon experience is not required, but if you're new to these tools, you should do some reading first. "Freedom of the Hills" is the mountaineering bible. Sunday: climb nearby Mt Warren (12327', class 2) and Lee Vining Pk (11691', class 2), which should have outstanding views down to Mono Lake. Maybe we'll get lucky and see some bighorn sheep.
