Midwest Mountaineering says
Crevasse rescue is an essential practice to remain safe on a mountain​. If you or your climbing partner fall into a crevasse or over an edge, you need to know how to get out before weather, injury, or muscle fatigue sets in, further reducing your chances of getting off the mountain alive. Nearly every crevasse rescue requires a level of improvisation based on the gear you have and how and where the fall occurs. Only a principled understanding of the method can help you in these scenarios. Once a fundamental knowledge of this technique is attained, rescue will be fast, safe, less stressful.

Join Midwest Mountaineering climber, Ian, for a hands on, practiced crevasse rescue scenario just outside the store, where you will get a fundamental understanding of crevasse rescue technique.

You would benefit to attend the clinic with the ability to tie the following knots: figure eight, butterfly, prussik, water knot and/or double fishermans, however, this isn't necessary for attendance. If you would like to bring your own mountain gear, you are more than welcome.

By attending this clinic, Midwest Mountaineering and its associates are not held accountable for any accidents of relation to crevasse rescue.
