Would you know what to do if your partner or an adjacent
party were injured on a multi-pitch climb?
Regardless of whether you lead or second, basic rescue
skills are critical once you begin multi-pitch climbing. Instructional topics include:
communication and rescue decision making.
a loaded belay system from above or below.
ascending techniques with the use of prussik cord.
up a basic Z-pulley haul system.
brakes for lowering an injured climber.
rappelling techniques for use with an injured climber.
The goal of this program is to empower you to carry out
a straightforward rescue from a high angle climbing environment.
We use standard ACMG rescue techniques, but choose to
emphasize practical applications instead of informal ACMG
system memorization. In doing so, we present a unique
rescue course that is more applicable to your climbing
than any other on the market.
