We recommend that you shop carefully and frugally for your clothing and climbing equipment. During this school, however we will be going shopping at the mountaineering stores around Seattle, which offer excellent equipment at reasonable prices. If you are unsure of your clothing and equipment wait until you get to Seattle as there will be plenty of time to hire or purchase new and used gear during this shopping day.
There will be ample time at the beginning of the school to review equipment and purchase or hire/rent any needed kit from the inexpensive shops in Seattle. Please bring your gear you may have questions about and we will go through it when you arrive.
