History of the Section and Stories - Series of Interviews with Members - by Dave Sholle - .mp4v format Part 1

Welcome to the Sierra Peaks Section

A varied schedule of climbing activities is offered during the climbing season. SPS Introductory Trips are offered for beginning climbers and WTC graduates. A good sample of our trips can be found in the SPS Climbing Archives on this site.

A Sierra Peaks Slide Show containing 61 mages has been developed to provide visitors to our site an understanding and appreciation of Sierra Peak Section activities and the Sierra Nevada of California. The slide show format and images were kindly provided by Reiner Stenzel. You are encouraged to submit photos from your recent outings to the Sierra Nevada for inclusion in the Slide Show.

In order to participate in an SPS outing, a waiver must be signed by each participant at the trail-head. This waiver is part of the sign-in sheet. A schedule of our activities can be found on this site, in our newsletter, the Sierra Echo, and in the Angeles Chapter Schedule of Activities.
