    I learned a lot from Darren, Terrie and almost all members who participated this RCK2 class. Although we had a snowy and windy day on sat, it was great day to climb on sunday. Thank you very much Darren and Terrie to share your knowledge and experiences!

    Does SMC have any carpooling policy/etiquette? Me and shreya would love to carpool from the south bay if that's possible. We'll chip in for gas.

      Hi Nikhil, we'll coordinate a place to meet to carpool. You can use this discussion board to post for that purpose.

      Nikhil, Shreya, Terrie, Tomoko, Julian, Toby - all of you are from the Bay Area. Perhaps you guys should see if you can find a place to carpool from.
