Join the Telluride Mountain Club for an evening with Steve House and his Alpine Mentors program at Jagged Edge Mountain Gear on Tuesday, December 1 at 6:00 p.m. Steve House will introduce the program and talk about the new Colorado Group. Three past participants – Buster Jesik, Colin Simon and Steven Van Sickle – in the program will present what they have learned over their two-year journey traveling the world’s mountain ranges.

Alpine Mentors is currently seeking aspiring alpinists under the age of 30 to join the two-year initiative that encourages mentors to advise and climb with a small group of select participants. The goal is for these climbers to advance their skills and ultimately be competent to complete technical routes on high mountains.

Alpine Mentors helps young climbers get the most out of their climbing experience and learn good judgment.

“Alpine Mentors is a great way for young climbers to interact with mentors. Those of us who have dedicated our lives to climbing and learned so much along the way want to share that knowledge with the next generation of climbers and alpinists,” said House.

Applicants should be between the age of 19 and 29 (as of March 1, 2016), have previous alpine climbing experience, and be capable and comfortable leading trad 5.10, WI 4 and M6. Additionally, applicants need to live within a days driving distance from Ouray County.

A suggested $10 donation for Alpine Mentors will be accepted at the door. BYOB, your favorite climbing buddy, and a camp chair.
