What the heck is WTC you ask?  Well if you want the long answer, look at their web page: http://angeleschapter.org/wtc/ .

 In a nutshell, , WTC is a 10 week classroom course with four outings.  The class teaches the basics of Backpacking, Navigation, Mountaineering, Desert Travel, Rock Techniques, Wilderness Medicine, Backcountry Hazards, Mountain Safety, Nutrition/Meals, Clothing and Equipment. 

I took the course a couple of years ago, so it is Pina's turn!
