Skills Practice: Climber Self-Rescue

  • December 1, 2013 · 8:00 AM

This session will be conducted by one of our distinguished alumni (John "Snafu" Mueller) and will cover climber self-rescue.  This is an advanced course, so you should have experience leading sport and traditional rock climbs and/or be an experienced follower on rock climbs.  Typically, attendees will already have multi-pitch climbing experience.  It will be conducted at an outdoor location and attendees will practice the material covered (escaping the belay and ascending the rope to the injured leader).  You will need a helmet, harness, and a belay device with a locking carabiner.

Please remember to answer the questions after RSVPing. If you are using a phone, the questions will not appear. Therefore, please check back again to answer the questions.

To participate in this outing, you must be a current, paid member of LVMC. You can obtain a membership via this link: The fee is $40 per year for a family/roommates or $30 per year for an individual. Please contact your organizer if you have any questions.
