Details

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!   We
will be reviewing knots, safe glacier team travel, and various rescue
techniques including the "C" & "Z" rescue pulley
systems.


 


Prerequisite: This seminar is open to HAMS graduates and
those with comparable experience.  This
is not an introductory class.  This
course is intended to be a detailed and complete review of glacier travel and
crevasse rescue.


 

Lecture:  will be held at the American Mountaineering
Center in Golden on Wednesday Jun 26 at 7PM



Field Day: The following Sunday, Jun 30th, 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. 


If you have not taken the CMC HAMS School please contact the
school Director, Jeff Brown prior to registration.
