American Alpine Club Rescue Course and Climbing Day

As the Ambassador for the American Alpine Club in the Western Mountains of North Carolina, I set up a few events every year for the local members. One of them is a free rescue course at Fox Mountain Guides. This year we had fourteen AAC members and four Fox Mountain Guides attend this event. We started out the day with some coffee and donuts and then quickly moved into looking at ways to keep our climbing systems quick and efficient to keep ourselves out of trouble. We also looked at the gear museum that FMG has on hand with old bolds and broken gear.

After lunch, we went to Looking Glass and folks split up practicing rescue techniques as well as getting some climbing in. Check out the photo gallery here: AAC Photos.
