Join us for “Rescue Ready: Single Pitch Climbing Emergencies”, a hands-on event designed to prepare you for common rescue scenarios in single-pitch sport climbing.

Gain confidence in your rescue skills and ensure a safe climbing experience for yourself and your partners. Participants will learn how to handle situations such as

  • safe bailing,
  • unconscious belayer,
  • unconscious climber clipped hard to the anchor,
  • dropped rope while cleaning a route,
  • stacked lowering on a short rope,
  • short of draws while on a route,
  • dropped a rappel device,
  • and more

Based on the weather forecast, the event will run early in the morning or late in the afternoon and will take about 5 hrs. TBC
