training - high-angle self-rescue day 4

This is part 4 of a 4-part series on high-angle self-rescue for teams. The emphasis is on rescue of an injured person on high-angle terrain (rock or ice climbs, canyons, etc.) by the other member of a rope team. The skills also apply to any rescue on terrain where ropes are required. This part will cover tandem and guided rappels. Everyone is required to wear a helmet. Each day is limited to 5 participants, and there is a $15 suggested donation to the WMC rope & anchor fund. As suggested by public health authorities and climbing associations, be prepared for social distancing, symptom questions, and use of hand sanitizer and masks. Bring your climbing gear, particularly anything you always carry when climbing; climbing shoes not required for the event. Location provided to participants, and we may have to move if our chosen crag is already occupied. Meeting time will be after work, decided depending on participants.
