Designed for those who have completed our Top-Rope Self Rescue Clinic, this program will build on your existing skill set, extending your self-rescue abilities to lead climbing and top-managed situations. This is an appropriate choice for climbers who lead single pitch traditional routes or for those with more experience.

Topics covered will include but not be limited to:

  • load transfer
  • releasable hitches
  • lowering from above
  • knot pass
  • tandem rappelling
  • pre-rigged rappels
  • prevention and good habits

This is an intensive program introducing many technical skills. A great deal of practice will be required post-course to solidify your skills. Additional days can be added upon request (if available).
