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.

The Everett Branch Self Rescue Course (SRC) is comprised of two components: SRC I & SRC II. This is SRC II only. Together, the components develop fundamental skills applicable to self rescue while climbing on rock, glacier and ice. The emphasis will be on self sufficiency for a party of two in the alpine. This course is a seminar, and is thus scenario based. Emergency leadership, medical care and group rescue are beyond the scope of this course.

Expectations: This is an advanced level climbing course. It is not intended for novice climbers. Completion of SRC1 is the prerequisite.
