If you've thought about climbing Mount Rainier and any other volcanoes or you have not practiced this season. You should come to snow school.

What:
We are headed up to Paradise on Mount Rainier to practice crevasse rescue skills. We will spend some time practicing self arrest (conditions permitting). I will demonstrate snow anchors and crevasse rescue including z-pulley construction. We'll spend the afternoon in small groups (rope teams) practicing how to build a z-pulley system and haul someone out of a crevasse. If there's time and interest at the end of the day, we'll set up some fixed lines and practice prussiking.

Where:
Burke Museum (we will drive any extra cars to the Park and Ride at 65th)

When:
Saturday, April 18
You should arrive at the Burke Museum at 6:45 AM
Plan on leaving promptly at 7 AM and returning that evening (8 PM or later depending of if your car stops for dinner)

Cost:
Drivers and passengers will be responsible for splitting the cost of gas and the park entrance fee ($15).

Experience: None required.
However you MUST attend the on Wed (4/15) or get permission from me

How do I join the trip? Post to this thread with the following information:
1. If you are coming as a teacher or learner.
2. If you can drive and how many people you can transport.
3. If you need any personal gear.
4. What group gear you can contribute.
5. Your experience level with glaciers and crevasse rescue.

Personal Gear: We will be playing in the snow all day, so dress appropriately.
Warm clothes including waterproof outer layers
Sun protection (sun block and sun glasses)
food for the day
water
Harness
2 prussiks
2 locking biners
4 non-locking biners
ice ax you can borrow one from the IMA
helmet you can borrow one from the IMA
belay device (optional)

Group Gear: Each rope team needs the following (minimum):
2 pickets
2 long slings
1 rope (the club will bring ropes, but we might need a few extra depending on the number of rope teams)
cordellette or long slings
2 pulleys (optional)

I will update this post on Friday afternoon with rope teams and cars.

1. Learner with experience... Happy to teach people who have none.
2. Cannot drive.
3. No personal gear needed.
4. I can contribute to the group two pickets, a pulley, a big heavy 11 mm rope if I have to, and a snow shovel.
5. Only been climbing for one season but went through Boealps BCC class and climbed rainier twice. Haven't actually had to use those crevasse rescue skills but thats a good thing.

So... Maybe I'm blind but I didn't see the date that this is happening. I don't know if I can go without a date.
