Single Pitch Self Rescue Course
from $325.00
Single Pitch Self Rescue Course
from $325.00

Learn potentially life-saving skills to build your confidence and address tough situations from experienced rock climbing guides.

“Self-rescue” refers to a set of climbing and rope skills useful in creating solutions to difficult situations you may encounter while climbing. Some of these skills include: escaping the belay, assistance techniques (3-1 pulley systems for assisting and hauling a partner), using the munter mule as a rescue knot. Every serious climber should consider devoting some effort to learning self-rescue. The life you save could be your own (or your partner’s)!

Although we cover certain mandatory elements in this course, we put your experience first to meet you where you are.
