PATC-MS Monthly Meeting

This month back at PATC HQ in Vienna

Join us Wednesday, November 8, 2017, at 7:00 pm as we conduct our monthly meeting.

This month, instead of a presentation, we will hold an informal clinic about the gear we need as we transition into winter sports. Bill Kessinger and Andy Weinmann will discuss boots, crampons, ice axes, ice climbing.  Bill and Andy will also go over techniques for sharpening ice tools and crampons.  Feel free to bring your tools, crampons and a file (~10"-12" flat/bastard file will work fine).

We are also holding our annual Gear Swap. Bring gear you wish to sell or trade to the meeting and see what other members have to offer! (Feel free to advertise your loot on the listserv before the meeting)

This meeting will be held at the PATC Headquarters in Vienna.
