  1. After an activity, the behavioral complaint form should be also be included with the safety report form

    After an activity, the behavioral complaint form should be also be included with the safety report form. If a member experiences any sort of discrimination we need to have the path of reporting a complaint simple and easy to find.

    Thanks for highlighting this issue. We agree it’s a high priority, and we want anyone to be able to easily and confidently use this tool, should the need arise. We are working on inclusion across our organization, and are seeking ways to be sure the behavior complaint form is more visible on the website so it can be used when needed. We are reviewing options for improving out incident reporting system and, as part of that process, will determine whether it is feasible to integrate the behavior complaint process with the incident reporting process.

  2. Need better lighting outside the Seattle Program Center ~Facilities

    It's pretty dark on winter night events with a high number of car/pedestrian interfaces from significant parking on the west side of a very busy street, and lots of people activity at the Mountaineers and near by venues. A couple of strategically placed street lights would help a lot. Would probably also help reduce car break in's at the park to have better lighting.

  3. STOP Allowing Registration to Occur Before Registration Begins

    Field Trips are full before registration date. Wtf? This makes registration dates pointless!!! As a new Scrambling student I’m patiently waiting for field registration to begin only to realize they are full prior to registration. Members are fine getting leader’s permission but should have to wait till the registration is open to register not before.

  4. Create a Single-Pitch Sport Climb Leader badge

    A pathway to leadership for students who participate in the Leading Bolted Routes or Sport Climbing courses would serve to create a pipeline of knowledgable, interested instructors for future courses, and help to ensure that Mountaineers' high standards are maintained during instruction in future classes and on official sport climbing trips.

    This badge would be distinct from any of the other existing climb leader badges, but would require a similar pathway-- leadership, WFA/MOFA, resume, etc.
