Meet at the Hollyburn trailhead. Hike in until we find a good spot to practice. Practice crevasse rescue (escaping the system, drop loop, 3:1, etc.) until we decide we are finished. Hike out. This is a practice session, not an instructional workshop, so you should have some knowledge of crevasse rescue.
