Rock Rescue Course
2 days Rock Rescue Training
Our Rock Rescue Course deals with problems that frequently confront recreational climbers and covers the skills necessary to keep minor problems from turning into serious accidents or injuries. You will learn an array of practical procedures, including how to lower a tired, frightened, or injured climber off a single or multi-pitch climb, what to do when a top-rope gets stuck, and ways to assist an injured partner up or down vertical terrain.
We thoroughly cover basic rescue techniques that every climber should know. We review anchors, equalizing protection, and rappelling and practice belay escapes, passing knots, and ascending ropes. We apply hauling and lowering systems as well as rappelling with an injured victim. The course also covers the issues involved in combining emergency medical services with the rescue procedures.
When you complete this course you should be well equipped with the management skills and the technical procedures needed for dealing with the accidents and problems commonly encountered in rock and ice climbing. This course can also be customized for specialized activities, missions, and settings.
