IS THIS COURSE FOR YOU?

If you already climb multi-pitch rock routes (or want to start), but are not sure about what to do when things don’t go as planned, then this course is for you.

LOCATION

Revelstoke is a great location to learn about rock rescue due to the short approaches and steep rock.

OBJECTIVES

Learn basic rock rescue skills:

  • Escaping the belay
  • 3:1 hauling system
  • Rope ascending
  • Tandem rappel
  • Lowering

Please note tandem rappelling practice is optional and will require the use of a mask during the COVID Pandemic (unless you join the course with another participant from your household). There will also be time for you to ask questions and for us to learn how to solve various common problems.
