Glacier Climbing Crevasse Rescue 2016 - all dates now live

Hello everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that all 2016 SIG 3.4 Glacier Climbing and Crevasse Rescue online training and free training events are now live! This year the club is offering two different types of free training events in the field: one at the very accessible Donner Peak Snowshed Wall and the second not as accessible but much more real on the Hotlum Glacier on Mt. Shasta. The online training will pre-qualify you for both!

SIG 3.4 involves decisions and procedures for roped team glacier travel, team self-arrest, crevasse self-rescue by ascending a vertical wall using your glacier gear, transitioning between lowering, belaying, and descending to the victim, how to build and operate a 3:1 crevasse rescue haul system and haul a person up using mechanical advantage. In the online session you will learn about these concepts and skills and in the free field training you will get a chance to do them for real!

Snow, Ice and Glacier Climbing Level Three Day Four: Glacier Climbing and Crevasse Rescue (SIG 3.4) Paid Online Training:

April 13th |  May 4th |  May 11th
