Stanford Alpine Club. During the year the Stanford Alpine Club continued its program of informal instruction for beginning and intermediate climbers. Practice climbs were held almost every Sunday of the academic year, while instruction and supervised practice in dynamic belay, rappelling, and rescue techniques were presented at least once each quarter. Many new members acquired the skill and confidence to second the easier class 5 climbs in Yosemite Valley and the Sierra. A few of the better experienced climbers did some of the more difficult standard climbs in Yosemite Valley. Members made winter ascents of Mount Starr King in Yosemite and of Mount Shasta. Two attempts on Mount Clark in Yosemite were turned back by bad weather. During the summer our climbers were active in Yosemite, the Sierra, and the Cascades.
