Fall 2015 WRFA Class
The classes are only a few weeks away!
Only 5 people registered for CPR/AED, and 9 registered for WRFA.
What are you waiting for? SIGN UP TODAY!
Remember that if you plan on instructing the BCC next year, WRFA meets the requirement of the BCC and this is likely the only WRFA class BOEALPS will be offering prior to BCC.

2015 Spring Campout
WHERE: Bridge Creek Campground Group Site
WHEN: FRIDAY MAY 1st TO SUNDAY MAY 3rd
WHO: YOU! ALL GUESTS WELCOME
DETAILS: BOEALPS has rented the group campsite at Bridge Creek Campground on Icicle Creek Road in Leavenworth Friday and Saturday night.
The club will be providing meat options and fixings for Saturday night.
Please bring a side or dessert to share for Saturday. Try to bring something a little creative so we don’t end up with a thousand bags of chips.
As always; BYOB.
FIRE! We all like a big campfire. We’ve asked for 1 bundle per carload of people in the past and that has worked well. We can never have too much wood.
In addition to ICC & BCC outing this camp out is a great way to meet members new and old. This is a great opportunity to add a day of climbing and meet new partners.
Please let us know you’re coming on our Facebook Event
2015 ICC Applications
BOEALPS Intermediate Climbing Class
The Boeing Employee’s Alpine Society Intermediate Climbing Class expands the physical, mental and technical limits of those who wish to challenge themselves in the alpine environment.
In an intensive, hands‐on environment, you will learn the skills and gain the experience necessary for you to be self-sufficient on intermediate‐level alpine climbs. Skills you will learn include:
- Leading traditional, multi‐pitch rock climbing
- Steep Snow and Ice Climbing
- Self‐rescue techniques
- Weekend alpine and expedition climb planning
Class outings are approximately every other weekend from middle of March to the end of August, plus classroom sessions every other Monday evening. Students are expected to be in excellent physical condition and have some technical climbing experience beyond that gained in the basic climbing class.
Application Deadline: Sunday, March 8th
1st Classroom Session: Monday, March 23th
