Regional Mountain Safety Programs, The Appalachian Mountain Club

The Appalachian Mountain Club is continuing courses and lectures on mountaineering problems, dealing largely with rock climbing and the rescue problems involved. The rock climbing section of its New York chapter is doing exemplary work in teaching safety procedures on local cliff climbs. Much stress has been placed on the responsibility of the belayer. The credit for initiating this program is due largely to Fritz Wiessner and Hans Kraus. The Potomac Appalachian Trail Club is conducting a series of talks and articles on safety.
