What we’re about
Our group meets a few times a month for mountain ascents / peak climbs primarily in the Central Sierras (Tahoe Basin), and are open to distinguished and exceptional outdoor adventures in other regions! Our objective is to facilitate bringing together like-minded individuals with love of nature (especially mountains!), hiking, backpacking, camping, and appreciation and conservation of California's natural resources. We empower our hikers to explore new and established routes (but no hand-holding!) and encourage social gathering after event at dinner, tailgating, or toasting activities. All members must follow directions explicitly stated in the Meetup description for meeting times, directions to the Trailhead, safety, and "leave no trace" principles (pack-in/pack-out). We generally look out for one another when on the trail. Planned events may also include exploratory, route-finding, training hikes for endurance, strength, cardio, equipment selection, acclimatization, general preparedness for future higher elevation peak summit attempts and treks, and yoga sessions. Join us; hope to see you at the next event, and Happy Trails wherever you go!
