Mountaineering Training

The Mountaineering Group Runs introductory and advanced courses each year in rock climbing and glacier travel.

These courses are taught by the volunteer leader/instructors of AMC-NH Chapter Mountaineering Group. To ensure your safety, the Group has developed as set of requirements and criteria for each climber to pass before being designated a leader or instructor.

The Mountaineering Courses are divided into several groups:

Glacier Travel
