Other Events

We periodically host professional climbers, organize video screenings, etc. that are open to the public. Find out about these events by checking the website and/or subscribing to our mailing lists


Common Adventure Trips

SAC trips follow the "Common Adventure" model. Our trips do not have formal leaders or guides, rather all trip participants will coopertively plan trips and share in the work of making the trip fun, safe, and successful. The SAC leadership initiates a few trips per year that are beginner-friendly and aimed to get new members connnected with more experienced alpine enthusiasts. 

Common Adventure trips of all skill levels can be initiated by any club member by posting to the club email list. (Hint: weekly socials are also a great place to informally survey member interest and get started with planning trips!)
