Skill Session fundays kick off!! Fuel your good weather itch and lets get brushed up on rope management and rescue skills. Come out and practice. I will have a few accident scenarios for the more experienced along with a review of some fundamental rope rescue techniques applicable for all types of climbing to get us kicked off. Beginners welcome but it will be most effective if you do a few minutes of research pre meeting but not necessary. (Escaping belays, hauling techniques, extended rappels, rope ascension are some things you can google)
Required Items to Bring:
Bring everything you need to practice! You will need 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.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Location might change depending on the weather

Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
