CMC Members-

Outings schedule reminder:


March 23rd - 24th Saturday - Sunday
Mojave Desert Peaks

Some easy to moderate peaks in the Providence Mountains area within the
Mojave Desert area with high-clearance vehicles recommended. Moderate
climbs of Columbia Mountain and Wild Horse Mesa would be day-hikes with some
cross-country scrambling. We will camp at Hole-in-the-Wall campground in
the Providence Mountains area.

LEADER: Terry Flood ASST. LEADER: Henry Arnebold

March 2nd Saturday
Galena Peak (9,330')

Galena Peak (9,330) is a fun local snow climb near San Gorgonio Mountain in
the San Bernardino National Forest. This is a great pre-sierra season
warm-up snow climb, 6 miles with 3,200 feet of gain. Ice axe and crampons
required. Send email with experience/conditioning to Joe at
<mailto:josephlwhite at earthlink.net> josephlwhite at earthlink.net.


March 16th Saturday
Winter Membership Outing

This year's Winter Membership Outing will be held on the north slopes of San
Gorgonio, in Horse Meadows. Join us for a fun day practicing snow skills,
and/or skiing and snowshoeing. Ski, snowshoe, or hike (1.5 miles+/-) to the
Horse Meadows area. We plan to practice snow anchors, ice axe arrest, "Z"
and "C" crevasse rescue systems, roped team travel and fixed line travel.
Note: if we are lacking local snow, the outing may relocate to the sierra.
Send email with experience/conditioning to Joe at
<mailto:josephlwhite at earthlink.net> josephlwhite at earthlink.net, or Tom at
<mailto:tritchie at rkmattorneys.com> tritchie at rkmattorneys.com.

LEADERS/ORGANIZERS: Joe White and Tom Ritchie

April 5th -7th Friday - Sunday
Joshua Tree

Come on out for a weekend of climbing in Joshua Tree. With over 8,000
routes, there's plenty to do! We have a campsite for Friday and Saturday
night which allows for 3 days of climbing - feel free to join us for any or
all of the days. Ideally, participants will have partners arranged in
advance - let me know if you need help lining up a partner. We may also
climb as a group on Saturday - we can make that call once we see what
everyone wants to do. Parking will be limited, so carpooling is strongly

To reserve a camping spot, send email to the organizer:
rsnorton473 at yahoo.com.


May 3rd - 5th Friday - Sunday
Eastern Sierra Backcountry Skiing

We are looking for some backcountry skiers or boarders who would be
interested in joining us for some backcountry skiing in the eastern sierra.
Prefer day trips only, so our packs will be light! Conditions will
determine the final location but the general idea is to car camp in an area
and make single day ascents/descents. Low snow pack may prompt the pursuit
of turn-free objectives. Send an email to Chris (jakecattleco at yahoo.com )
or Ron (rsnorton473 at yahoo.com) if interested.

LEADERS/ORGANIZERS: Ron Norton and Chris Jakober

August 3rd - 10th Saturday - Saturday
Black, Red and Mt. Kaweah

Come join us for a week long adventure into one of the most scenic areas in
the Sierra. From the Mineral King trailhead we will head over Sawmill pass
and down into the Big Arroyo before heading up to a camp that puts us in
position to climb our main objectives: Black Kaweah, Red Kaweah and Mt.
Kaweah. Other climbing objectives may also be attempted depending on group
gusto. Participants must be in good physical condition and comfortable with
class 3 climbing. Send recent experience and conditioning to Ron
(rsnorton473 at yahoo.com).
