Advanced Crevasse Rescue

This class is open to any former graduates or current students of the High Altitude Mountaineering School (HAMS) or those with similar experience with building 3:1 haul systems.

It’s that time of year again: time to brush up on your glacier travel skills before heading to Mt. Rainier, Denali, South America, or other mountains around the world where crevasses pose a danger! This is a must have course for anybody climbing on glaciers. Our real-life scenario practice will give you the experience you need to rescue a climbing partner that has fallen into crevasse as well as mitigate your own risk should fall into one. After this course, your skills should equip you to confidently travel on not just the well-trodden routes, but some of the less popular (and less populated) glacier routes around the world where being self-sufficient is a must!

The ACRS Seminar includes two lectures and a field day:

Lecture Nights: Thursday, 4/14/16 and Monday 4/18/16, both at 6pm and both at the American Mountaineering Center (AMC) in Golden

Field Day: Saturday, 4/23/2016, meeting at the AMC at 5am and caravanning to Loveland Pass
