Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Course Description: The Everett Branch Self Rescue Course (SRC) is comprised of three components, SRC I, SRC II and SRC III. Together they will develop fundamental skills applicable to self rescue while climbing on rock, glacier and ice. The emphasis will be on a party of two’s self sufficiency in the mountains. This course is primarily focused on skills development and is scenario based. Leadership aspects of handling an emergency, anchor building and first aid are beyond the scope of this course. SRC II – Advanced Techniques will build on the skills introduced in SRC I. The primary scenario will involve rescuing a fallen leader. This module will provide an introduction to alpine aid technique. Expectations: This is an advanced level climbing course. It is not intended for novice climbers. Minimum requirements will be the ability to lead on rock, build multi-point gear anchors, and completion of SRC1. This class will require the ability to improvise as necessary with limited gear. It is assumed that participants will be fluent with the baseline skills of use of the autobloc rappel backup, escaping from a loaded belay and the transition of load to the anchor via the Munter Mule Knot. These skills are introduced in the Everett Branch Basic Climbing Course, taught in the Crag and Intermediate Climbing Course, or can be easily picked up through reading Chapter 4 of David Fasulo’s book Self-Rescue.
