Wisconsin Hoofer Mountaineers

Wisconsin Hoofer Mountaineers. Sunday climbing at Devils Lake during the academic year continues to be the mainstay of our rock climbing activities, although occasional overnights, hikes, and an outing to the Mississippi Palisades were programed. Because of an unusually large new membership in the fall accompanied by extremely good weather, improved facilities were incorporated for teaching dynamic belaying to the newcomers.

In August one group climbed in the Tetons, ascended Oregon’s Middle Sister, and in Glacier Park, British Columbia, climbed Mount Sir Donald by the north ridge. A second group climbed for two weeks in the Fremont Peak area of the Wind Rivers and also visited the Tetons.
