Rock Climbing 402-Self Rescue for Climbers

The Complete Self Rescue for Climbers Course looks at skills every climber who ties into a rope should know: basic competency in risk management, problem avoidance, and self rescue skills. This course emphasizes reducing the risks in the first place, teaching new, clever systems and techniques to reduce the chance of ever having to use the rescue skills you will learn on the course. We have distilled the information taught on previous courses, and looked into more realistic situations for self rescue. We will teach you the most efficient systems and won't flood you with over complicated, useless systems. All these skills are useful in everyday climbing, and it’s amazing how much speed and efficiency is gained from having these skills “dialed." Self rescue is a topic that all climbers should be skilled in for themselves and the people they climb with. Click here to book this course
