rock climb - high-angle self rescue - escaping the belay - May 26, 2021

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
This workshop series covers high-angle self-rescue for teams of two. The skills developed and practiced in the workshop are applicable to anyone who might need to rescue their partner on steep terrain, including rock climbing, canyoneering, glacier travel, etc. This is part 1 of 4, each of which covers a different aspect of the self-rescue toolbox. It is not necessary to attend all 4, but each part is distinct from the others. This part is escaping the belay, and will also include a brief introduction to the overall strategic plan of a self-rescue attempt. Helmets required, and public health guidelines will be followed. Climbing shoes not required for this workshop. These workshops will be Wednesdays at 1800 hrs this year.
