Participant Information

Please review haul systems (3-1, 5-1 FOTH, and 5-1 complex) & the rescue process before we meet to practice. This way it will be a more efficient practice session when it is fresh in everyone's mind. If anyone has a rope, please bring it as David, Alan, and I don’t own one yet.



  • harness
  • Rope
  • prusiks
  • pulleys
  • slings
  • locking/non-locking biners
  • Ice axe
  • picket (2 per group of 3 is enough; won't be putting them into the system, but we can work on correct placement)
