Self Rescue

Self Rescue

This clinic is designed to work on the technical rope skills necessary to get yourself and an incapacitated partner off from vertical terrain and back to the ground safely. The main scenario this clinic will focus on is working from the ground up in an instance when the leader is injured on a multi pitch or long route passed the halfway mark of the rope. We will focus on how to effectively use the gear that is on your harness to accomplish this task. While the clinic is built around a theoretical scenario, the skills and tools used for this task have a wide variety of implementations and uses in everyday problem solving at the crag or in the mountains.
