Crevasse Rescue Clinic

 In preparation for Mount Raineer the climbing club hosted a crevasse rescue clinic last night up Rock Canyon. We learned how to use prussik knots, a type of knot that you can use to ascend a rope. We also learned how to use pulleys to get someone injured out of a crevasse. It was great to learn and practice these techniques.
