The volunteer work I have done for the CMC is as follows:
I've been an assistant instructor for Basic Rock School twice, and helped with the 2016 Boulder Group clubroom move.

My favorite CMC experience was:
I have to go with a top three on this one. The 2013 climbing festival at Eldorado State Park, where the climbing was followed by an awesome afternoon of food, drink, and socialization! Celebrating 14er finishers with some old-timers on Uncompahgre peak was very special. And last but not least, the regular Wednesday evening social hikes with fun groups of people and good snacks to share!

I believe CMC's role in our community is:
We should provide classes, trips, facilities, and conservation to help members have fun & and safe experiences in the outdoors. I see the CMC as an organization that is especially well suited to help people safely grow their mountaineering skills and reach new heights.
