Mountaineers' List

The Mountaineer designation should do two things: it should provide to a trip leader an indication of a prospective participant's training and basic capability, and it should place upon that individual the responsibility to make the further judgments relative to the climber's own ability to participate in a particular trip at a particular time.
Criteria for inclusion of the name of a member on the Mountaineer's List are generally based on the climber's mountaineering knowledge, the climber's judgment, and the training the climber has received and the climber's demonstrated competence. They, of course, can provide no indicator of a person's physical or mental capability at any given time. Hopefully, any qualified mountaineer should be able to discuss knowledgeably with the leader the demands of a planned trip and then decide whether the climber feels capable of participating.
Inclusion of a member's name on name on the Mountaineers' List should indicate to a trip leader that the person is basically capable in the mountains. Such knowledge may be of real help to a leader in making decisions as situations develop which affect the conduct of the trip. Mountaineers, for instance, ought to be more capable of sharing the responsibilities of leadership should some split of the group be required or of returning safely to a road head without leadership if that might be necessary.
Inclusion on the Mountaineers' List is really only an indication that the individual is knowledgeable enough to judge for himself or herself whether he or she is able to participate in any particular outing, not that in fact the climber is so able. One's physical condition is certainly a function of time and circumstances. Listing as a Mountaineer will not assure that one is always able to undertake any hike offered, but should assure that the climber is able and willing to asses his or her own limits.
