rock climb - high-angle self-rescue 1 - May 3, 2022

This is the first part of the annual high-angle self-rescue workshops. Each of the 4 parts covers a different aspect of self rescue by a team on steep terrain, using only the gear they should be carrying. These techniques are useful for rock and ice climbing, crevasse rescue, canyoneering, and boating. Part 1 covers escaping the belay. Each workshop will consist of a brief introduction to self rescue, the topic of the day, a demonstration for the group, and then the group will break up into small teams to practice the skills. Helmets required, but rock climbing shoes are not recommended. Bring all typically-carried rescue gear, in addition to a harness and standard climbing gear. The workshop will take place regardless of weather, so dress appropriately for the day.
