Improvised First Aid for Climbers

  • Urban Ascent

FREE to AAC members ($5 for non-members)

Have you ever had a partner get injured while climbing? Accidents happen, indoors and outdoors. What do you do when your friend dislocates their ankle, shoulder, or breaks something? Should you move them? Can you make the call to fix them up and plan the evacuation? 

Climbers are tough, but occasionally too tough on ankles, knees and shoulders. Whether you are a boulderer, route climber, or alpinist; knowing how to respond when someone gets hurt is critical. 

Join Jason Luthy from Longleaf Wilderness Medicine and the American Alpine Club - Idaho Section to learn how to use the supplies you have in your climbing pack to stabilize musculoskeletal injuries that can occur at the gym, the crag or on some remote ridge!
