HI All, I'm shifting this due to the severe weather warning! Stay dry out there. Its been a while since I've done one of these but its been a spicy year of events so I figured its time to brush up! Come out and practice rope rescue skills applicable to all types of climbing. I will be putting on a few more sessions this summer as a safety reminder for those with experience and learning for those who haven't had much thought on rescue techniques. This will be a stand alone session catered to cover the basics that every climber should have before getting on the ropes. You are also welcome to practice/share anything you would like to cover and some basic knowledge of escaping belay, assisted rappels, hauling and rope ascension are always helpful but not required.
Required Items to Bring:
Locking and non locking biners, harnesses, belay device, personal anchor, prussic, anchor and a few draws. I will have prussic cords if you need one or want to try other types. Bring a heavy pack for a VICTIM if possible.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Meet at the playground on the corner of 14 ave and 25a st SW.  

Note that this is a peer to peer sharing session only and is NOT a course. It is also open to the public and participation numbers may be larger than what is listed in this event.
