Time: All Day


Get ready for glacier travel with a focused day of crevasse rescue training. The course starts with basics of ice axe self arrest and building T-slot anchors. Then we carry on to route finding on glaciers and when to rope and when not to, preparing the rope for glacier travel and moving roped. Finally the full process of a crevasse rescue from arresting the fall up to and including a drop loop haul and a z-drag system are covered. We can accommodate participants with experience or without so the course can act as an introduction to these skills or as a refresher.

This course will be taught by Island Alpine Guides. There will be a cost of $126, to cover the cost of the guide’s instruction.
