ROCK CLIMBING AND ROPE USE/RESCUE TRAINNG - 2018

  

APRIL 9, 2018

CUSHMAN WATT SERVICE CENTER

Knowledge of safe and effective climbing practices can open this exhilarating activity to you and your Scouts. The
objectives of this training module are to introduce the adult Scouter to the BSA climbing program and to the specialized skills and techniques of basic rock climbing and rope use/rescue. The Unit can experience the challenges of high-mountain travel, especially using cross-country routes, with confidence because of this training in climbing and in rope use and rescue techniques. Participants will also be instructed in the eight points of the BSA’s Climb On Safely procedure. The opportunities and requirements for being trained as a BSA qualified climbing instructor will be discussed.
 
This High Adventure training begins with an evening seminar, Monday, April 9, 2018, 7:00 – 10:00 pm, at the Cushman-Watt Service Center, 2333 Scout Way, Los Angeles. A syllabus that covers the materials discussed will be given to each participant.
 
Friday evening, May 5, we will establish a base camp in Joshua Tree National Park, for field training on May 5, 6 and 7. (The Park has a $25.00 per vehicle entry fee.) Each participant may be required to obtain a limited quantity of special equipment. That GLAAC-HAT provides the climbing ropes and other gear. You will be instructed in the use of rope and other gear for climbing (both belay and rappel) and in rope rescue techniques. Then you will do some climbing. Your High Adventure Team staff includes BSA qualified climbing instructors who have years of experience.
 
A fee of $40.00 is charged for the training. Registration is required by March 23. You will be sent a confirmation, or notice of cancellation if there are less than 5 sign-ups by that date. Completion of this training is recognized by the award of a special patch.
 
Hike Aid 3, “Full Dimension High Adventure Training”, has a complete discussion of the training programs of the GLAAC-HAT. It may be downloaded from the Council High Adventure website at http://glaac-hat.org/HikeAids.html.
