Climbing Instructor Training

It is only Saturday evening and the weekend seems long already. Eric an I are taking the BSA Climbing Instructor class. It started Friday evening at 7:00 and we went home after 10:00 Today we met at the base of Mt Rubidoux at 8:00 in the morning. We put into practice what we leaned, setting up anchors for climbing or rappelling.

After several setups and tests, we had to do the rappelling rescue. Eric rappelled down one set of ropes and tied off like he was stuck. Clothing and hair has been known to stop ones decent. I repelled down next to him, tied off, hooked him to my rig and disconnected him from his. we then began our descent back to the ground floor. Eric had to do the same for me and he did it well.

The day was hot and by 2:00 in the afternoon we had consumed 3 liters of water and a little more sun that we needed. It is nice to get home an relax where it is cooler.
