Self Rescue Skills

1 or 2 Days Available



Prevention is always the best medicine but if it hits the fan do you know how to get out of a jam? This clinic will give you the basic skills necessary to get you out of sticky situations. While we can cover these skills in a one day course, two days are recommended to get through all of the more advanced systems.


1 Day (8hrs): Refresher

It is critical that you practice rescue skills on a regular basis to retain them. If it's been a while since you're seen/practiced or read about these systems, you will benefit from the one-day refresher course. There's a lot to cover so time permitting, we will focus on as many of the following skills as possible:

-Knots and hitches for rescue

-Load Transfers

-How to descend and ascend the rope

-Hauling systems

-Rappelling with an injured climber


2 Days (16hrs): Intensive Intro 
If you're learning these skills for the first time, then we highly recommend the 2 day curriculum. There's a ton of information to digest and we will give you time to practice and refine all of the following systems:

-How to avoid common accidents

-Knots and hitches for rescue

-Load Transfers

-How to descend and ascend the rope

-Hauling systems

-Rappelling with an injured climber



If you own personal climbing equipment we highly recommend you bring it with you because the equipment and materials you use can dramatically change the execution of each skill.
