Date: May 31, 2013
Canyon Rescue Workshop

Steve Jackson (ACA certified guide and instructor)

Clark Wiscombe (ACA certified guide and instructor)

Course description:

How often do you sit back and think about the “What ifs” in canyoneering? Have you played a rescue scenario in your head and wondered,” How would I solve this?” or “What could I do to help?” Canyoneering is a remote sport requiring at times “Self Rescue” techniques. This workshop is designed to give you a few extra tools to help with these situations should they arise.

Topics covered:
Simple conversions

-convert a static block to a haul

-convert a static block to a lower

-convert a contingency anchor to a haul

-convert a contingency anchor to a lower

Tandem rappels and lowers

Location:Diamond Fork Canyon

We will be spending the entire day outside so please dress accordingly. Bring a lunch and plenty of water. We will be practicing these skills and helping you understand simple mechanical advantage.

    Very useful instruction. The time went by too quickly, though. Great to meet all of you and I look forward too our future canyon descents.
