Expedition Planning

Have you ever dreamed of embarking on a climbing project to a distant mountain range? A list of unknowns might keep you from making the decision to go forward with this wonderful project!  In this seminar Professional Climber Carlos Buhler will introduce a flow of events through which one can put together a more complex climbing trip to a distant location.  During this 90 minute interactive seminar, the various steps will be discussed.  From coming up with an objective, assembling the team, raising the money and support, putting together the gear, training in an efficient manor, and finally executing the plan, the process will be mapped out.  Considering various levels of complexity, we will outline a process which gives you the opportunity to maximize your chances of success.

$45 per person.
