Muir Valley Response to Climbing Accident Training

April 24th, 2013 by Yasmeen

From Rick and Liz Weber, owners of Muir Valley:

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, from 9 AM to 12 noon, a free training exercise will be conducted at Muir Valley on how to respond to a climbing accident. Although these exercises are routinely conducted for members of the Muir Valley Rescue Group, we have decided to open up this training for those outside the Muir Group — especially to those who regularly climb in areas where the official emergency response services are iffy.

We will be meeting at the Shelter House at the Muir Valley main parking lot at 9 AM sharp. If you wish to attend, please try to show up a few minutes early, as we will be leaving shortly after meeting to conduct the training scenario at the Bone Yard Wall. This will be a realistic scenario with a fallen climber.

Bring a helmet if you have one. If not, one will be furnished to you.

    The paragraph says “Saturday May 11th,” the poster/flyer says “May 9th,” which is a Thursday. Just thought you might want to fix this discrepancy to avoid confusion.
