Self Rescue 101


Many new climbers know just enough information to get themselves into serious trouble. What happens when the clock is ticking and you or your partner are injured? Do you wait for help or try and perform your own self rescue? Sometimes holding out and waiting for help is the right answer but other times this may not be an option when time is of the essence. Our Self Rescue 101 course focuses on the fundamental practices of ascending ropes utilizing hitches and GriGri's and setting up 3:1 hauling and assisted hauling systems. Self Rescue 101 was designed to open the climbers mind to the possibilities of using their systems in different ways other than just climbing. This course will lay the foundation for higher level Self Rescue courses which can be very complex and confusing if you're new to this type of practice.
