Self-Rescue Course with Marc Chauvin Chauvin Guides International LLC June 15 & 16, 2013 What a great weekend it was for learning. There were 10 students in the course and we met Marc Chauvin of Chauvin Guides International LLC at Quincy Quarries.  The course was offered through the AMC Boston Chapter Mountaineering Committee and covered on both Saturday and Sunday. Lecture was for the most part of Saturday at the “O” Wall and we practiced some of the techniques Marc covered in his lecture. On Sunday we reviewed the techniques that were covered the day before and then put them to practice on the rock! We covered Transitioning from Belay, to either a counter balance rappel, a haul or belay escape.
