A cold windy day, fragile ice, and a belay partner that wasn’t paying attention. Accidents happen and that is why well-founded first aid expertise is of paramount importance for any ice climber.
Our basic first aid course is designed to provide elementary skills in remote care. The clinic focuses on making sound decisions regarding patient evacuation, as well as skills for extended care in the wilderness. The course is hands-on, experiential format providing participants with the skills and confidence for making remote medical care decisions. Due to the nature of ice climbing, first aid is incredibly important for climbers who recreate away from definitive medical facilities and support.
This will be a non-climbing class and participation is limited to 15 people. Preregistration is required. All participants will receive a basic first aid kit from Adventure Medical Kits!
$65 per person.
