As a mental preparation for the upcoming climbing season, there will be a group show on peak-climbing in our Sierra Nevada for the April 10 PCS meeting. Bring 10 to 15 good pictures united by a particular Sierra theme to share with the group! The theme could be one climb, a trip to a region, a set of climbs over a short period, or a focus on PCS trips or List-progress. Pictures can be recent or from the distant past, and you might want to bring a larger number in case we have enough time. Bring your images to the meeting on a memory stick or as slides for a Kodak projector.

Join us for a day of ice axe practice in the high country at Sonora Pass. I anticipate being able to include a peak climb along with the practice. Optional car camping - details TBD.

Crampon practice is also an option, though we rarely
find suitable snow conditions. Participants supply their own gear, and should have some knowledge of how to use an ice axe, but experience is not required.
