So last week life got pretty lifey so I had to cancel the crevasse rescue practice, but for those who signed up I'd like to do it this Wednesday. We will not review ascending a rope, but more demos of a 2:1, 6:1, time permitting 9:1 or whatever people want to go over. This is for the same group from Wednesday July 5th's practice day, but if some people cannot make it then the open spaces can be filled by anyone who wants to practice (or if you sent me an email and I told you to sign up). Sorry for cancelling it last week, but hoping to see you this Wed!

Required Items to Bring:
Harness, helmet, lockerx3, nonlockerx3, slingsx3, prussicx2, ATC, smile, STOKE!!!!!!
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
Any additional items you use for glacier travel (e.g. Tidbloc, micro traction, pulleys), pen/paper/camera if you're a nerd like me, and it'd be great if you have a rope and want to bring it (more ropes= more opportunities to set up your own hauling system after the group practice ones)

- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.

Cost Includes:Some of the best things in life are free :)

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our Etiquette Guidelines!
Note: If you don't show up we will be very hurt!
