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 III – Advanced Crevasse Rescue will build on the crevasse rescue techniques introduced in the Basic Climbing Course. The primary scenario will involve a solo rescuer scenario in a two man glacier team. Approach: Due to the complex technical nature of self rescue, our traditional methods of instructing are not efficient for our purposes. This course will build a framework to facilitate individual self learning through hands on problem solving in small groups. Much of the onus will be placed on independent pairings of students to do the reading in advance, to work through scenarios, and to essentially teach themselves these skills at their own pace and on their own schedules in preparation for the scheduled field trip modules. It is within the independent groups that the actual learning will take place. Instructors will work with these groups to answer questions and oversee basic safety. The discussion forums within the Mountaineers website will be relied upon heavily to share learnings, best practices and to coordinate practice sessions. The field trips modules are intended to share best practices in a group setting and to validate competency in skills. This is in striking contrast to how traditional Mountaineers courses are run, i.e. classroom lectures with instructional field trips. Expectations: This is an advanced level climbing course. It is not intended for novice climbers. It will require the ability to improvise as necessary with limited gear. You will have roughly three weeks prior to the field trip module to prepare. Plan to make allowances to meet with your group at least weekly to prepare for the field trip module.
