AMRC Mock Winter Low Angle and Avy Re-cert

Avy re-cert at the gravel pit couloir with low angle rescue. I was on strike team and botched clearing the field for the beacon search by chasing a rope to a "dead" body.

At least I got a free tree ski out of the day!

Hiker with sprained/broken ankle 1.5 miles up La Luz. Litter hike out through slippery, spiky, rocky terrain. In field at 10:30, out at 12:15. Good AMRC turn out.

A lead climber took a 60 foot whipper in Chimney Canyon on Muralla Grande or Clandestine Wall... I don't really know. By the time Nate and I got up there we could hear the helicopter evac'ing the patient. Certainly was a nice day though.

I got to go on my first AMRC mission on Sunday. 18 year old male broke leg up from Embudo TH. I led Team 3 and set up and ran the first low angle lower. Great team response and the patient was out in 2 hours!

I have completed the AMRC final test and am now on the team. Thanks to all the team members, especially Justin, for putting the classes and trainings together.

Also, this weekend I received my ham radio license so that I can better communicate on missions.
