  • Wednesday, September 08, 2021
  • 4:00 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Carderock Recreation Area, Potomac, MD


Registration is closed

Please join us at Carderock on Wednesday, September 8th for an evening of climbing followed by a Wilderness First Aid refresher. Several members of PATC-MS have volunteered to teach basic WFA skills to the club. We will have 4-5 skills stations that will run for ten minutes each, including splinting, tourniquet application, head injuries, and more. If there is something specific you'd really like to see, contact Caroline. Please bring a mask to wear when you are within 6 feet of another person. 

We'll meet at Carderock at 4 for a few hours of top-rope climbing. Bring your own personal equipment (shoes, harness, helmet, and chalk bag) and feel free to bring a top-rope set-up if you have one. 

At 6 we'll gather for the WFA refresher at the Carderock Pavilion. The meeting will end with a cookout. Feel free to bring a side dish or drinks if you'd like!

Contact Caroline if you have questions.
