Our 2-day rope rescue techniques course will give you the skills and knowledge to get out of almost any of the tricky situations that climbers can encounter. It covers all the fundamental techniques of rope rescue, from prusiking right up to dealing with an unconscious casualty dangling over an overhang on a sea cliff.
On the Rope Rescue Techniques course, we will cover the following areas:
- Tying off a belay plate
- Assisted and unassisted hauling/hoisting
- Escaping the system
- Anchors in and out of reach
- Lowering past a knot
- Counter-balance abseils
- Traverse problems
Most of us when we go climbing never think about the possible problems we may incur. Or if you do, we think we may be able to deal with any situation we are dealt with. But have never had to put these into practice. On our rope rescue techniques course, we will provide you with the tools and techniques necessary to deal with the most complicated of rescues.
