Stanford Alpine Club. The Stanford Alpine Club provides members of the Stanford community with instruction in technical rock climbing and other aspects of mountaineering. The club runs weekly practice climbs at local rocks where the fundamental rules of climbing and safety are taught: Experienced members are able to practice specific techniques. Qualified club members are able to participate in the trips to Yosemite Valley, our primary climbing site. Several trips into the Sierra were made during the winter to introduce members to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snow camping. Several parties also attempted winter ascents of Mount Shasta. Fall quarter began with the annual Tuolumne Meadows trip, with new members getting their first try at peak climbing and High Sierra mountaineering.
