rock climbing 458 - high-angle self-rescue, section 4 - July 18, 2017

High-angle self-rescue for climbers (and canyoneers and....), last 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...) anchors and raising systems, we will move on to the final step: getting off the wall. Helmets required, and bring ALL your standard climbing gear. Trad racks suggested. Prussiks, ascenders, spare 'biners, etc. will 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.
