Lets head outside and review our self-rescue skills!

The Goal

Our goal is not to teach self-rescue skills from scratch. Instead, we plan to review our skills and brush up. Some of the skills include


You should have taken a self-rescue course before or equivalent. We expect that people will be rusty on their skills so don't worry if you don't remember everything you learned. Please review the list of knots below. If any of them look like greek to you or you could not perform them right away I highly suggest that you review the skills on your own or sign up for our TRS where we will review those skills.


We plan to do this all day on Sunday, April 30th. However, if the weather is absolutely miserable we may move the date to the 29th.


TBD. Locations will be within day-trip distance but may be up in the Whites.
