Self-rescue

Even on short 50 foot sport climbs or on hundreds feet walls, rock climbing is full of unforeseen events that can determine our progress or success:

What should we do if it’s getting late and dark and we need to rappel down the route?… What should we do if our follower is injured and needs help?…
When we go to the mountain, we must be prepared, so it is necessary to know the basic self-rescue techniques that can save us to spend a cold night hanging on the wall. These techniques are simple, using versatile material, not only useful in case of an accident but can be used at any time during the route.

This course is about how to use this type of gear properly, but also we will work on technical skills such as setting bombproof belays with little material, how to protect factor 2 falls, rappelling safely, etc.

Skills to learn depending situations:

  • Help our follower with a simple pulley.
  • Help our follower if injured, reach our belay.
  • Descend a route with our injured follower.
  • Rappeling on a knotted rope.
  • Ascending a fixed line.
