6pm at the South Plaza outside climbing wall

We'll be outdoors as much as possible.  We'll  use the outside climbing wall in the South Plaza to practice rappelling.  Crevasse rescue will be done on grass with rebar if possible, or if necessary we'll use the sandbags in the basement.  This is a practice night focusing on specific skills, not an "open climb night."

Please only sign up as a participant if you took Basic this year.

Any assistant instructors who can teach extended rappel and/or z-pulley are welcome.  If the instructor spots are full, please email me, I will create more spots for you.
