Join the American Alpine Club and the National Park Service for a week of climbing and stewardship in the beautiful Tuolumne Meadows in the Yosemite High-Country. This is a low-key, free event intended to provide some free camping for members and friends and an opportunity to get your hands dirty and give back to the Park. |
We will be working with the Yosemite Climbing Rangers as well as the Yosemite Climbing Stewards to get some important high-country projects completed and we'll be able to get in a TON of great climbing while we're at it. There will be a free pizza dinner for all volunteers held at the Mobil Station in Lee Vining on the night of Friday, August 23. The deal is we work 6 hours for every 2 nights of camping. We will work out a project schedule that will get everyone involved. Last year we had some surprise guest speakers and a self-rescue clinic that was free for volunteers--we'll be trying to organize something similar for this year as well. On days we're not volunteering, the park is yours to climb in. Come prepared with everything you need--climbing gear, camping gear, food, work clothes, etc.
The AAC will be providing a big cooler (or two) full of beer and the aforementioned volunteer pizza dinner at the mobil. Camping arrangements will be handed out to registered participants.
There is limited space for this event. We can only offer space for 16 individuals, so please register now to secure your spot. This event is free to attend and to register.
**IMPORTANT:To attend this event, you must sign our online waiver which can be found at http://goo.gl/bN0mC. It's simple and easy to fill out and can be used for future AAC events!
