Description:

Crevasse rescue pulley systems are complicated, and after last weekend's practice session on a glacier I've realized that my recollection of how to set them up is getting fuzzy. So let's meet up at Jericho Beach Park and practice in a chill environment! I can bring some ropes, slings, carabiners, and a couple of pulleys but it would be helpful if others could bring some too, as well as their own harness and prusiks.

People who haven't done this before are absolutely welcome to stop by and watch/practice, but I should note that I'm not really intending to be an instructor here. If there are any more experienced people who would want to help instruct that would be fantastic, but the plan is mainly to just work things out together, meet other people who are interested in mountaineering, and perhaps even chat about some future trip ideas!

Let's meet at the little grove of trees here: 49.272543, -123.196440. We should be able to use the trees or a fence somewhere as an anchor and go from there.
