Participant Information

**This is not a course and is not a substitute for proper instruction**
With that said, I'm happy to cover basic crevasse rescue procedure, snow anchors, ascending the rope etc. But you will get most out of this session if you are familiar with crevasse rescue before attending.

The plan will be to work through the components of a crevasse rescue separately, and at the end put it all together.

Equipment will require most of:
- Harness
- Prusiks
- Pulley(s)
- Slings/cordelettes
- 6-8 carabiners (locking and non-locking)
- Ice axe
- Picket [optional]
- Rope [optional]
