rock climb - high-angle self-rescue, vol 1

This is part 1 of a 4-part workshop for all those who play on steep terrain; climbers, canyoneers, mountaineers, etc. The workshop will cover self-rescue techniques for a team caught in steep (class 5.x) terrain, or needing to evacuate through steep terrain. Each part covers a different aspect of the toolbox, so try not to miss any. Part 1 covers escaping the belay. Meet at 5:30 pm as for Ledgemere Picnic area climbing in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Those who took this series previously are encouraged to attend again to polish (or refresh) skills and help new students. As with all parts, we will first see an example of what we will practice that day, then break up into small groups to have everyone practice the skills. Helmets are required, and bring your harness, belay/rappel device, personal anchor setup, and any other rescue gear you normally carry. If you are short on gear, contact the organizer in advance to see about borrowing equipment for the day. There is a $10 suggested donation for each part of the series.
