Description

Join us for this 1-day crevasse rescue refresher in beautiful Marymoor Park in Seattle.

After meeting up at Miyar Adventures and Outfitters headquarters in Seattle, we will drive out to the park and begin.

This review session is a bit  more academic, so we will not go to an actual crevasse in order to make the most of our time. I recommend bringing a recording device so you can look back on what we have learned at your own leisure.

We will spend the day in the park working on rope management, considerations for glacier travel rigs, setting up snow anchors and 3:1 haul systems, self-rescue systems, transferring the load of a fallen climber to the anchor and problem solving at the crevasse lip.

At the end of our eight hour day, we will put all this practice to the test in various self-rescue and partner-rescue situations.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this opportunity to refresh and practice some crucial crevasse rescue techniques and work on critical thinking exercises!

This course requires some previous experience. If you are interested in taking the first step in learning crevasse rescue, you might also like our 2-day course on the slopes of Mount Baker.

If you already have previous crevasse rescue experience, but want to further your knowledge and skills, then we recommend taking my 3-day advanced course on the slopes of Mount Baker!

About the guide

At Miyar Adventures, we know that every trip is as much about discovering yourself as it is about discovering the world. Miyar was founded because of our passion for climbing - a passion we will strive to share with you whether you join us for a trip close to home or in a remote corner of the Himalayas.

We strive to be your trusted companion as you chase your life-long dreams. We believe it is our duty to ensure that you are safe and that you have fun every time you climb with us.

We want to make climbing accessible to all adventure-seekers, regardless of their age and climbing background. And when we go climbing with seasoned climbers, we make sure they have enough of a challenge.

Miyar's guides have relevant training through the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) for the terrain in which they guide. This includes training in rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier travel, and snow sports, as well as avalanche training and Wilderness First Responder or higher level medical certification.
