rock climbing 458 - high-angle self rescue, section 3 - July 11, 2017

High-angle self-rescue for climbers (canyoneers, boaters should also come), 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 and raising systems. 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. Registration required to make sure enough ropes and instructors show up for skills practice. There is a $10 suggested donation for the workshop that helps buy ropes and gear for the WMC climbing outings.
