Self Rescue

Self Rescue

Our self rescue clinic works on the technical rope skills necessary to get yourself and an incapacitated partner down from vertical terrain and back to the ground safely. The main scenario this clinic will address is how to use the gear on your harness to rescue an injured leader who cannot be lowered because they have climbed above the halfway point on their rope.  While the clinic is built around a theoretical scenario, the skills and tools taught have a wide variety of implementations in everyday problem solving at the crag or in the mountains.
