Part One Point One

Crevasse rescue: is the process of retrieving a climber from a crevasse in a glacier. Because of the frequency with which climbers break through the snow over a crevasse and fall in, crevasse rescue technique is a standard part of climbing education.

A day before Joel and I headed up the mountain, we wanted to make sure we were both on the same page for crevasse rescue. So in the massive amounts of snow right next to the trail head parking lot, we practiced. What we learned is that neither of us wanted to fall into a crevasse, nor, have to rescue each other.

    ha!!! that was great! Why hadn’t I seen this sooner??? So, perhaps you could use a little more practice? Not that I have any advice or experience to contribute whatsoever.

    Ha!ha!ha!Jo-el, you were such a gonner. Next time carry something valuable with you that Adam wants, so he has a bit more motivation to pull! Say- tickets to see ballet at the Lincoln Center. I’m not joking.
