Optional Skills Practice - Private Residence

Optional session to practice crevasse rescue

  • Easy

We'll meet at 6:30 pm in Issaquah Highlands to practice crevasse rescue.  We'll wrap up before sunset. 

Please be on time. We'll have instructors run through a scenario first, and then we'll break up into small groups to practice.  We'll be outside, practicing on a grassy slope, so wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Instructors--reach out to me, and I can add you and increase the size of the trip.
