  • Elevation Gain: 1,200 ft

8 PM at the Gold Creek Trailhead for Green Mountain. State Parks pass required to park in the parking lot. We will plan to depart the parking lot at 0800, so arriving no later than 0745 should do the trick. 

Field session where students will execute rescue of a second who is unable to advance the climb and may be unresponsive. Second iteration for the second to advance to and rescue a fallen leader who may be unresponsive.
