Rainier 2-Day Crevasse Rescue School Itinerary

We begin the day at 8:00 a.m. sharp with a meeting and introductions at IMG Headquarters.

The day is spent at IMG teaching important climbing knots and hitches, anchors and anchor systems, belaying, rappelling and other safety skills. We'll take a break for lunch before moving on to the practice of basic crevasse rescue systems and self rescue.

The following day we meet again in the morning at IMG HQ and will be shuttled up to Paradise where we'll train for the day. The hike to the training site typically takes about an hour. We'll spend this day learning snow and ice anchors, briefly reviewing simple crevasse rescue systems, learning more advanced crevasse rescue systems and teaching crevasse self rescue techniques.

After the day's training we descend to Paradise for the shuttle back to Ashford. Please note that lodging is not provided for this program.
