Lecture 2 will cover health and nutrition considerations during a climb, and provide a hands-on introduction to the mechanics of rescue (looking at the advantages of a pulley system, etc., in preparation for introducing the z-pulley).  Additionally, planning and decision making will not be addressed by a specific "lecture," but will be woven into the other components.
