Dude On Rock...

Congratulations to our latest Rock CIs - 
    Tim Hill, Jon Davis, Eric Apelgren, Scott Dyreng, and Ralph Embry.

We spent a fun (but occassionally soggy!) weekend building anchors for
climbing and rappelling on Pilot Mountain.  Graduates and staff got to play
a bit on Sunday afternoon and explore some new routes. 

A huge thank you to our training staff: James Olson, Nora Olson, Charlie Brown,
and Deborah Hill!  And a tip of the hat to Ralph Embry, an experienced CI coming
for his Rock re-cert, for providing leadership and a tall helping hand!   

I heard that many are interested in the Rock CI training but couldn't make this
event.  If you or someone you know is interested in the Rock CI program (we 
have cool gear!) drop me a note at and i will look
into scheduling something in the Fall.
