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 on it)
