This clothing list is intentionally specific because we want you to be warm, safe, and to enjoy the out of doors. Comfort is a must when learning about the outdoor environment! Our climbing courses will frequently have different weather than the Cornell campus. Expect it to be wet and muddy outside and come prepared for variable weather conditions.
It is better to dress with layers so that you can regulate your temperature based on your activity level and changes in the weather. We strongly recommend wool or polypropylene (or Thermax®, Capilene® and other synthetics) because these materials retain their insulating qualities when damp whereas cotton does not. Dressing according to these concepts will increase the quality and enjoyment of your outdoor experience.
Nylon wind pants
Head and Hands
Personal Maintenance Kit
Rental of all climbing equipment except rock climbing is included in the course fee.
Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek
My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Mission Eco-Trek provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional -even beyond what we had expected from the contract....
