At the October, 1947, Annual Meeting, the Obsidians established a Climbing Committee, whose duties would be to "Schedule and supervise" the major mountain climbs. The need for this grew out of the realization that often, during the all too short summer season, the people wanting to go on the traditional week end trips could be divided into two groups; those who would prefer a one day trip, of medium difficulty; and those who would prefer a week end trip, with a climb of some major snow peak. To meet this need, the Local Walks committee would plan and supervise the less difficult trips; the Climbing Committee would plan and supervise the major mountain climbs.
The schedule of climbs for the 1949 season has been planned by the committee, and appears on the following pages.
