Princeton Mountaineering Club. The spring of 1951 found the Club preparing its first bulletin, climbing in the Shawangunks and looking forward to an active summer. During the summer members made first ascents in the Yukon and a number of climbing tours in N. America (Bugaboos, Tetons, Rockies) and in Europe (Dolomites, Austrian Alps, Swiss Alps). The initial turnout in September produced finally a group of about 30 active members. Again the primary functions of the Club are training new members, developing competent leaders and stressing the importance of safety. The current program includes belaying practice in near-by climbing areas and at the Delaware Water Gap, a series of lectures and a winter trip for ice climbs in Huntington Ravine on Mt. Washington.
