About the Event
This workshop is being offered as part of the Tacoma Basic Alpine Climbing course.
Following the death of a climbing student in 2018 (on a non-Mountaineers climb), Katja and a small group of climbers uncovered several contributing thinking errors and a need to better prepare and empower students to confront heuristic traps. Based on her presentation-turned-book, “Breaking the Halo", Katja presents a simplified approach to confronting complacency, assumptions, and communication breakdowns in outdoor education and beyond. Katja’s experience as a facilitator and speaker weaves together the story of the incident, personal anecdotes, and life-changing lessons that will inspire current and future leaders to “break every halo they see”.
