The SSI curriculum will occur over 2 training lecture/sessions at the MMC or around Portland, followed by a two day field session on Mt Hood's glaciers. It will focus on building climbers' comfort and skill moving in steep alpine terrain including snow and alpine ice. This will include placement of snow and ice protection and anchors; movement on glaciers, steep snow and ice; a review of and practice in small team (2 person) rope management; and rappelling in the alpine environment. Throughout the course we will be incorporating concepts of choosing reasonable objectives; carrying appropriate safety equipment; continuous risk assessment; recognition of hazards; and situational awareness while climbing.
This will be "Lecture" #1. There will be 2 lectures/sessions in total at the MMC, followed by a weekend field session.
