Off to Mountaineering School

I've decided to take my outdoor adventures to a new direction and try mountaineering. I'm beginning a three-day course given by the International Mountain Climbing School in North Conway, NH, this weekend. The first day will be an introduction to crampon and ice axe use, including the all-important skill of self-arrest. The second day includes more skills-learning and a hike to a base camp at the base of Mount Washington for some winter camping. On Monday will be our ascent of Mount Washington.
