Transcript of Canyoneering test

Objectives: Review physicals Equiptment check Hand out - pre-test Upcoming assignments... 1. Evaluate and list the equiptment needed for 3 different canyons. 2. Safety breifing. Time required: 15 minutes... First evening session 1.1 check-in/arrival 1.2 knot testing objectives: To verify that each participant has the ablity to tie each of the following knots. Giving at least one example of how each knot is used in canyoneering. A. Figure eight knot: on a bight, rethreaded. B. Ring bend (AKA water knot) in webbing. C. Create Prusik loop with cord using double fisheman bend. D. Connect two load bearing ropes for rapelling (e.g. double-fisherman bend, EDK, rethreaded figure eight, square fisherman bend.) E. Friction hitches (e.g. Prusik, Klemeist, Backman, Hedden.) F. Clove hitch G. Girth hitch H. Safety back up knot ( Fisherman.) I. In-Line loop ( e.g. Butterfly knot, Directional Figure eight.) J. Munter hitch: improvised lower, Belay or rappel. K. Releasable anchor ( e.g. contingency eight or another.) Time required: 30 minutes Teaching aids: Knot check-off list. Content: Testing of the knots. Instructional Notes: Divide up into groups to be passed off with the aid of assistant instructors. To then check off knot list. Then signed off and turned into the records keeper. 1.3 Anchors Classroom Reveiw Learning objectives: As a result of this training experience, participants should be able to understand how to apply good principles of: A. Anchor location: D.E.A.R. ( dry, efficient, accessicle rope retrieval.) B. Walking a knot. C. Anchor construction: EARNEST: ( equilized, angle, redundant, no extension, solid timely. D. How to rig single point natural anchors. E. How to rig existing fixed artificial anchors. F. Evaluate all aspects of existing anchors before use: (webbing condition) to determine if it needs re-rigging. G. Sequence marginal anchors. Training aids: *The ART of canyoneering. ACA skills list
LCD projector, computer, Prezi (presentation.)
Participant notebooks, pen/paper
Participant Canyon leader requirements check off sheets bolt board. Time required: 30 minutes Content: Review the learning objectives for this module. As a result of this training experience, participants should be able to understand how to apply good principles of: A. Anchor location: D.E.A.R. ( dry, efficient, accessicle rope retrieval.) C. Anchor construction: EARNEST: ( equilized, angle, redundant, no extension, solid timely. D. How to rig single point natural anchors. E. How to rig existing fixed artificial anchors. F. Evaluate all aspects of existing anchors before use: (webbing condition) to determine if it needs re-rigging. G. Sequence marginal anchors. Instructional Notes: Briefly explain what will be reviewed in this module. Review DEAR, open up a discussion on the topic of good anchor location. Ending in rope retrieval that progresses into walking a knot. Why and when to walk a knot as a process of successful rope retrieval as to avoid sticking the ropes prior to pulling. The importance of EARNEST reviewing the principls of good anchor construction followed with participant demonstration and input from class. How to rig a single point natural anchor, discuss what types of single point anchors would possibly be found in a canyon and how they would be rigged appropriately and have participants help demonstrate to the rest of the class, and show a mock natural anchor rigging. Evaluate and rig existing fixed artificial anchors by demonstrating on the bolt board and showing the use of rapeeds. Examine existing webbing. Breifly mention what is sequencing marginal anchors and the importance of: ( more in depth discussion in a later training session.) Allow for questions and discussion.
