Rock Rescue & Advanced Ropework

Three pitches up, the leader is thirty meters out on a fifty meter rope. They fall and are caught on a good piece of gear out of your view. You yell! No response. Do you know what to do? Could you deal with the technical aspects of a complex rope rescue? Be safe, be secure and be self sufficient on your climbs. Learn the basics of self and partner rescue on rock. This one-day session will give you these tools so that you can be more confident in dealing with an emergency situation on the rock.

Our course is designed to introduce or refresh the skills of Rock Rescue and will allow you an opportunity to practice these skills in a controlled environment. This is a must-have course for any active multi-pitch rock climber.
