Rescue 101 Clinic
It goes without saying that if you choose to expose yourself and others to the inherent risks of rock climbing, you ought to also have a basic knowledge of rescue skills. This clinic lays the foundation for those skills. It is three hours long and covers three topics we feel are essential to improvised rescue in a technical rock setting.
Topics covered are:
- Knots & Hitches
- Belaying from above & Lowering
- Rope Management
- Harness with belay loop
- Plaquette style belay plate (Petzl Reverso, Black Diamond ATC Guide, etc.)
- Petzl Grigri
- Small cord for tying friction hitches (5mm, 40”, or pre-sewn loop)
- Cordellette (7mm 21’)
- 2 HMS locking (pearabiner) carabiners
- Four-foot nylon sling
- 2 non-locking carabiners
Refund Policy: With two weeks notice before the clinic we will offer a 50% refund or a 100% refund in the form of a gift card that can only be used towards another trip, clinic or private instruction.
