There will be a Self Rescue Clinic held on FRIDAY, October 5 at Red River Gorge. While this is not an RRGCC or Rocktoberfest event, I’m hoping that the timing is good and those that would like to attend can.
The clinic is $45/person and runs from 9:30 – 3:30 on the 5th. It will be taught by Karsten Delap. If you’ve never met him, he’s pretty awesome. Very good at teaching, tons of experience, and some pretty great stories too.
To sign up, call 1-888-28-GUIDE or visit foxmountainguides.com to sign up for the Rock Rescue Course to Benefit the RRGCC. The course is capped at 8 people, so if you’re interested SIGN UP NOW! (As in, stop what you’re doing, pick up the phone or click the website, right now. )
If you miss him, he will be giving a second clinic on Sunday during the Rocktoberfest clinics. This will be the “Quick Fix Techniques” Clinic – it’s not a self rescue clinic, but more about using techniques to deal with those annoying problems that crop up from time to time when rock climbing.
