Snowdonia Improvised Rescue Course
Most climbers attend one these courses after having an "epic". Far better is to know the skills before, or better still, know how to avoid minor problems becoming an epic.
Climbing rescues can be technical affairs. We try to simplify as much as possible and provide you with a "toolbox" of skills that will enable you to cope with most situations, whether it be in single or multi pitch environment.
The course will be geared to the needs and experience of the participants and can include:
- Avoiding common problems.
- Prussiking knots.
- Escaping the system.
- Stuck second.
- Injured second.
- Retreating from multi pitch climbs.
- Traverse rescues.
- Rescuing a leader.
Cost: £60 per person 1 day. £110 2 days (based on 2).
Prior experience: Competent leading diff grade climbs or able to safely rig single pitch climbs (for single pitch rescue scenarios).
Dates: Please contact Gradient Adventure.
