Learning to Rescue

The second day of the course was about crevasse rescue in super nice weather. We learned how we can save other people in the roped party, but also ourselves, from a crevasse. A distinction is made between self-rescue and third-party rescue. Both have their own techniques. So, equipped with rope and material, we went to the glacier. We were able to practice self-rescue on a railing at the mountain station. Much to the delight of arriving tourists.
