How to Climb A Fourteener in Fall

Sept 14, 2022 | 6:00 pm Mountain Time | Free Webinar

Autumn in the mountains is a time of change, with many different conditions possible: Rain or snow, heat or bitter cold. However, it is also one of the least crowded times of year to go hike or climb a fourteener. Join my free webinar to learn about picking a peak, research, packing, emergency prep, and more – specifically for climbing fourteeners in the fall months of September, October, November, and early December. Can’t attend on Sept 7th? Register anyway and we will share a video recording with you to watch later. See you there!

Everything You Need to Know for the Fall!

There’s a lot to know when it comes to the mountains in the fall. This free webinar will start from scratch, walking you through the process of picking a peak, researching the route, packing, preparing, and going on your autumn climb. 

Learn what factors you need to consider when picking a summit to climb, including elevation, the Yosemite Decimal System, time of year, and other issues.

Do you know what you need to bring on a 14er to stay safe? We’ll cover emergency supplies, clothing, and other important gear.

We will walk through how to identify, manage, and mitigate risk in the mountains to avoid dangerous situations and stay safe.

Even with the best preparation, accidents happen. We will cover what to do if you get sick, injured, or lost while climbing your first fourteener.

Taking some time to train before your first hike will make it an easier and more enjoyable experience. We will cover some basic tips for training for a 14er.
