This skill-check session will cover usage of an emergency descent rope (and a few other lightweight pieces of climbing gear) to aid a frightened participant in descent of scrambling terrain.

Prior to the 6/4 skill-check session, participants will need to complete a thorough 2.5 hours of video training, complete a quiz, and have scrambling knots down pat. (This is a skill check workshop; not an introductory instruction workshop.) The video training includes decision-making criteria for determining if the situation & terrain are appropriate for using a rope, alternatives to using a rope, and critical thinking strategies for avoiding usage of a rope.

Leader permission required -- email leader with your background, and where you are at on the path to scramble leader qualification.
