Description:

Hey all G1 graduates, prospective G2ers, or anyone else interested in glacier travel! We've heard from y'all that you're super stoked to learn how to travel on glaciers this year! That's awesome; but due to the popularity of G1 and our updated risk management protocols, only a handful of those interested in these skills could attend G1 this year. But have no fear; your solution is here! I know we're all mountain people, but why not learn these skills such as crevasse rescue on Wreck Beach?! Just think....who would wanna learn setting up Z-pulleys in freezing cold, polar weather when you could learn it and practice it at sea-level in this beautiful spot:

I rest my case. Clinics will discuss crevasse rescue steps, roping up for glaciers, and any advanced crevasse rescue skills you wish to learn. The basic crevasse rescue clinic will be held every 1st, 3rd, or 5th Thursday; with the advanced skills clinic held every 2nd and 4th Thursday; please check the Wiki page for additional details. Get stoked to get safe out there!!
