|Let's practice some crevasse rescue at the bluffs!
On the BMC crevasse rescue was only briefly
introduced so I figure I might as well go over it
more. Will review things like how to ascend a
rope, building 2:1, 3:1, 6:1 hauling systems,
other crevasse considerations or whatever can be
squeezed into 3 hours of crevasse rescue
awesomeness! Woohoo!!!! (Preference given to BMC
participants, but also open to anyone that wants
to review their crevasse rescue skills. I don't
actually know if I can do a preference thing but
let's just roll with it until someone calls me out
