Climbers Self Rescue Course
This rescue skills course is a bit like first aid - every climber knows they should do a course but never seem to get around to it. We think this course is vital. Would you know what to do is your partner fell and injured themselves half way up a multipitch route or you were abseiling and found you had to get past a knot in your rope or even if you simply dropped your belay plate? This course gives you so much more confidence when you are climbing because you have strategies available to you if the worst happened.
We will cover all the key rescue skills from simple to complex including escaping the system, prussiking, hoisting, accompanied abseils and also spend some time looking at how to avoid the problems occurring in the first place. The focus is on simple solutions and everything is done at your own pace with a step-by-step approach that give you lots of time to practice skills thoroughly.
This one day course is based in the Peak District and we will provide any technical equipment required. Over the years we have delivered this course to many recreational climbers as well as members of climbing clubs, rescue personnel and instructors. If you have a group that would be interested just get in touch and we'll sort out a course to suit your locatiuon and timescale.
