Ladies -- this is a fantastic opportunity --

The Washington Alpine Club (WAC) is offering their annual basic mountaineering course this spring, and they need lady applicants! In order to promote mountaineering among women, the WAC tries to keep a 50:50 ratio of men to women in their classes. However, I've heard from some of the WAC instructors that lady applicants are scarce this year, and the WAC wants to get the word out that they want more ladies to apply! Because the instruction is volunteer-run, the price is kept to a minimum -- the cost of the class is $325, which is a bargain compared to any other basic mountaineering course. Although I am not a member of the WAC, I personally know several of the instructors, and I can attest that they provide a quality course.

Applications will be accepted until January 31, 2011, and the course runs March 22 to June 12th. Climbing Mt Baker is the final challenge of the course.
