Why is it essential to take a BMC Course? Can't we just learn everything through experience just like most of the others have?
Well, it is good to learn by experience. They say learnings from experience stick more. But no one ever goes through all the necessary experiences that will fully prepare one for the uncertainties of the outdoors. It is alwasy good to gain other perspectives and best practices from seasoned and experienced climbers.
The SPi Mountaineering Club has not had any close encountered with severe harm because of careful planning and a lot of practice. Though we are still continuing to develop and be better, we know that we have experience and prayer on our side.
