Would you know what to do in an accident at the crag? Would you know how to escape the system if your second needs help. Would you know how to ascend a rope or hoist/ lower and injured second? All the skills you will learn on our Self-Rescue Course will ensure you know what to do if it all goes wrong.
Over the day we will show you the fundamental skills to self-rescue in a safe and engaging course allowing you to increase your knowledge and technical understanding. You will need some previous rock-climbing experience to ensure you make the most of this course. Ideally you will be a trad lead climber and will understand the basics of placing protection and linking gear together with the rope or slings. If your unsure about your experience just drop us an email and we will happily advise you.
During the day you will look at
- Tying off the belay plate
- Basic hoists and lowers
- Escaping the system
- Ascending/ descending a rope
