May 16th & 20th, 2012
It’s that time of year again to brush up on your glacier travel skills before heading to Mt. Rainier, South America, Denali or other mountains around the world where crevasses pose a danger!
The Advanced Crevasse Rescue Seminar (ACRS) includes a lecture, field day, and detailed workbook.
May 16th from 7:00 to 10:00pm at the CMC. We will be reviewing knots, safe glacier team travel, and various rescue techniques including the “C” & “Z” rescue pulley systems.
May 20 all day on Loveland Pass. We will simulate crevasse conditions by hanging victims over a cornice on top of Loveland Pass. There will be lots of hands-on practice for students performing as rescuers and victims.
This seminar is NOT an introductory course. It is open to HAMS graduates and those with comparable experience. This course is intended to be a detailed and complete review of glacier travel and crevasse rescue. If you have not taken the CMC HAMS School, please contact Brendan for permission and application to participate prior to registration.
Deadline for sign-up is Monday, May 14th.
Cost of the seminar is only $30.00 for Denver members, and $10 more for members of other CMC Groups.
