Leader Skills Day - This will be called "Moving Higher - Tips and Techniques to get out of Trouble". This will be
?for folks that already lead and want to "share information" on responding to several scenarios. This will be at
?Sugarloaf 11:30 AM May 4th at the Eastview parking area. We will work on? 1) how to extend the belay so
you can see your partner 2) different ways to help a second through a crux including 3 to 1, 5 to 1, and 6 to 1
?pulley systems.? 3) How to lower a second from different anchor systems and 4) if we have time - learning
?basic load transfer systems with munter mule knots and how to use these to escape a belay, pick your
injured second off the cliff and rap down. We will not cover leader rescue systems but the basics of what
you learn here will be used when you take the next step of a leader rescue scenario. ?I think we'll have to
limit this to about 10 -12 ?folks for a manageable size group.
