The self-rescue course will be held on 10th and 11th of November 2018.  There are still places left.  So if your interested please me contact me ASAP.

In collaboration with Adventure Out, CAWA is pleased to offer an instructional two-day course designed to develop the technical skills, experience and confidence needed to safely perform self-rescue.

The course will be held at Mountain Quarry on Saturday, 10th November and Sunday, 11th November.

This course is ideal is a refresher or for those  trying to increase their confidence climbing outdoors so they can take on  those bigger bucketlist adventures.

Mountain Quarry offers a range of climbing challenges and serves as the ideal environment for learning self-rescue skills. 

 The instructors will provide participants with constant feedback and ensure appropriate safety standards are maintained throughout the course.

 Skill points will include:

  1. self-rescue (ascending and switching rope systems, anchoring methods, escaping compromised belay systems)
  2. partner rescue (conscious & unconscious)


The course is set at an intermediate level, so you should be a confident top rope climber with experience in establishing belay systems utilising natural or artificial anchors and in belaying climbers.

  1. Hello Dirk,

    I’m interested in attending the self rescue course on the 15th and 16th of September.
    I would definitely like to gain the skill and confidence in knowing what to do if something was to happen while outdoors.
    I’ve only just started my outdoor climbing and I guess I’ve still got a lot to learn and I hope to gain so much from this course.
    If you can please put me in the list that would be awesome.

    What are my payment options?
    I’m not a CAWA member.

    Kind regards,

  2. Hi Dirk,
    Sorry for such a late reply, But somehow the reply you’ve previously made was not forwarded to my email somehow.
    And I was only able to see this via the CAWA web site, which I’ve only just checked recently.
    I am aware of the date changes of the self rescue course on November the 10, unfortunately I will not be able to attend this.
    I’m very interested in the course and I hope I can attend the next available date and hopefully our communication will be a little bit more direct for next time.
    Kind regards,
