AMC August Member Meeting:

Beta, Boasts and Beer

August 24, 2022

Wednesday, 7 p.m.


Having fun is serious business for the AMC! We’re keeping our fingers crossed that COVID numbers will continue to be moderate or better yet will take a dive! And, we can take a stab at gathering in person in the dog days of August. Please join us for a meal, a brew, a good story or two of your summer adventures. Please RSVP here for an accurate number of attendees. ALSO, please update your RSVP if you are unable to attend!
OHSO Brewing + Distillery Company, in Paradise Valley, is a local restaurant, brewery, and distillery that is a dog-friendly, social hot-spot in the valley. It has a casual neighborhood vibe with its own personality. OHSO is all about creating unique and approachable beer and spirits in a fun, open environment. Look for the AMC gathered around a couple of the outdoor tables on the patio. Hope to see you there!

This is an outdoor event. AMC follows current CDC guidance for in-person activities. We will require all participants to follow the guidance in effect at the time of the event.

AMC Schools

The Arizona Mountaineering Club has been teaching outdoor rock climbing for over 50 years. As an all-volunteer organization, AMC is able to offer the most comprehensive training at a very low cost to AMC members.  For complete course details and the upcoming schedule, please see our Schools page at

Basic Outdoor Rock Climbing - This rock school is for new climbers or anyone who learned from friends, but wants to fill in knowledge gaps and learn the current Best Practices in rock climbing and self-rescue basics over the course of 4 evenings and 3 all-day weekend sessions.

Anchors - This course is the next step for AMC Outdoor Rock Climbing grads. We will teach you how to safely and efficiently build trad and sport anchors for all aspects of climbing.  Combined with the skills learned in the Outdoor Rock Climbing School, you will have the complete skill set required for safe top-rope climbing.

Lead - Is it time to move to the sharp end of the rope?  This is an advanced climbing class.  All aspects of lead climbing will be addressed with a strong emphasis on multi-pitch trad climbing.  Topics include gear (ropes and pro), the dynamics of lead falls, solid gear placement, rope management, anchors, and the mental as well as physical aspects of sport and trad leading. This class is for every competent climber. Even if you do not plan on leading, you will learn and understand the dynamics of lead climbing, and it will make you a more knowledgeable and capable climber and second.

Basic Canyoneering - A recent addition to the AMC training curriculum, this course is intended for those who have never been canyoneering along with those wanting to refresh their understanding of the many core concepts. The basics are a critical starting point for every responsible individual entering the canyons.

Mountaineering - The AMC provides an excellent opportunity to network with fellow members with significant alpine skills and experience.  In addition to the opportunity to share and learn with fellow members, the AMC continues to develop partnerships with noted guide services for top-notch professional training and skills development.
