Anyone can become a member of the Chicago Mountaineering Club.
Requirements – To become a member you must first participate in three outings, or the Western outing. In addition you will need two current members to sponsor your membership. Don't worry about finding sponsorship; after the outings the only problem should be narrowing it down to just two. On any given outing weekend there are a wide range of climbers from 18 to 81, climbing 5.2 to 5.13, all having a great time together.
