It was that time again, time for the navigation portion of the Mazamas Intermediate Climbing School. On Thursday there was a lecture on Map and Compass use plus a talk about using a Global Positioning System. Then on Saturday we assembled once again at the Mazamas Mountaineering Center for practice using the map and compass. For me it was a little more, because my participation was the final requirement in this level of Climb Leader Development for me. With the blessing of the powers that be, the next step for me would to be lead lead three climbs as Provisional Climb Leader.
In October 2006 I took the plunge and applied for the Mazamas Climb Leadership Development Program. In December I learned that I had been accepted. The inspiration for this blog is to share with you my progress along this path.
The content of this blog will not be limited to that endeavor, since there are other aspects of my life.
