One of the benefits of being part of a search and rescue team, particularly one so close to a lot of climbing activity, it that you get to learn from the lessons of others mistakes.
Rocky Mountain Rescue members Dan Lack and Alison Sheets will share some of these important lessons from the last 15 years of climbing accidents in Boulder County.
This discussion, based on a paper published in 2012), will outline the simplest climbing accident prevention measures and dispel some of the myths on what causes climbing accidents.
The discussion will also provide some valuable insights on making an assessment, if an accident occurs, of whether you should call for organized rescue, and if you do, what you can do to tip the scales to a better outcome.
