training, climbing 289 section 3

High-angle self-rescue for climbers (and canyoneers and....), third part. We are doing a 4-part self-rescue skills experience. Each part builds on the previous one, so be warned if you miss a section. After reviewing (or finishing...) how to escape the belay & ascend the rope, we will move on to the third step: Building the anchor. Helmets required, and bring ALL your standard climbing gear. Trad racks suggested. Prussiks, ascenders, spare 'biners, etc. will also be very helpful. Those without the necessary gear will learn what they need to go acquire. Those who have not read either Mountaineering: Freedom of the Hills, or the John Long self-rescue book will want to get one and read up. $10 climb fund donation requested (for the complete series).
