Rope Rescue for Rock Climbers

Have you ever wondered what to do if you, your climbing partner or someone else had an accident climbing. This course should be essential for trad climbers and will give you the confidence to know what to do if the worst happens.

Many climbers are totally unaware of what they should be able to do in the event of a accident or even the common causes of accidents to climbers. What this course does is develop your awareness and understanding of the skills you may one day need to rescue yourself or other climbers.

It is not just accidents either, what would you do if the weather turned half way up that 6 pitch classic mountain route you are climbing up. Do you have the skills to rescue yourself and retreat safely. Similarly, what would you do if the same happened after you abseiled down into a sea cliff?

This rope rescue course for rock climbers is possibly the most important course you can go on after you have learnt to lead climb. As the last thing you want to feel in a situation that requires a self rescue or helping others is useless. The key skills of basic rescue for rock climbers are covered in this course. We teach you those rope rescue skills through a combination of practice and progression, as each part of an efficient rope rescue system is built up from the components of another. So you'll leave with a toolbox full of tricks to help you avoid a problem or if neccessary get you out of a tricky situation.

Typical skills covered are:

  • Tying off a belay plate and an Italien Hitch
  • Ascending a rope or pussiking
  • Creating a 'auto-block' or progress capture system
  • Escaping the belay system both in-reach and out of reach
  • Basic hoists - Assited Hoist, Unassisted Hoist and mechanical advantage
  • Abseil rescues
  • Calling out mountain rescue or coastguard
  • You will leave this course more confident than you started and ready to take on any adventure the vertical world may throw at you.
