This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by the ACC Calgary section jointly with ACMG Guide Brent Peters and PeakStratagem. Either Brent or one of the PeakStratagem guides will be teaching this event.

No one plans to have an accident while out climbing but do you know what to do in the event of one? Imagine, you are on pitch three of a multipitch route and the leader take a fall with more than half the rope out. They are unresponsive! Do you know what to do? Could you deal with the technical aspects of a complex rescue in this scenario? This Alpine Mentorship Event is for individuals with prior rock climbing experience that want to learn the fundamentals of Rock Rescue. The event will be designed for multi-pitch rock and alpine climbers and will cover rope ascension using 2 prusiks or 1 prusik with a progress capture; counter balance rope ascension; releasable load transfers; counterbalance rappels; and tandem rappels. This is a full rope rescue tool box.

Cost: $175 for the one day course.

Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. 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). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons.
