Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue

Sometimes, one day is just not enough! This is especially true for the many complexities of glacier travel and crevasse rescue techniques. This course is strongly suggested for those climbers who are considering tackling bigger climbs that involve glacier travel. In our two-day course we’ll practice the fundamentals of crevasse rescue, then we’ll take our skills out onto the glacier on the second day to refine our travel techniques, informed by our understanding of how to extract a partner in the unlikely event that someone does punch through. We’ll have ample opportunity to refine techniques and have plenty of chances to practice. We’ll also be able to go more in-depth on rope systems and route-finding on glaciers and in glaciated terrain.
