Whether you climb the occasional top rope route, want to someday climb a remote, multi-day big wall, or anything in between, you owe it to yourself and your climbing partners to accumulate self-rescue skills. Climbers with some general climbing experience in addition to top-rope anchoring experience (such as the OAC Gear and Anchor Class) will learn a variety of skills and tricks to handle emergencies ranging from simple to rather complicated. You will be surprised how often you can use these "emergency" rescue techniques in rather routine situations, as well.
Over the course of this class your AMGA trained Outdoor Adventure Club guide will teach you skills and then present scenarios in which to implement the skills. On Saturday you will learn to manage a belay from above, create hauling systems, how to escape a belay, arrange safe and efficient rappels, ascend ropes, and improvise variations of all these systems. With the skills in place at the end of the day, we will have time to practice a few "real-world" situations on the rock.
This class is very much hands-on. You will be tying the knots, building the systems, raising, lowering, ascending and rappelling. This class is great if you've read self rescue books but are confused by all the seemingly complicated knots and systems. Having a professional guide teaching you and giving you feedback will make learning these skills much easier.
This is a condensed version of our very successful two-day Self Rescue Class. We cover the same material in both classes. The difference between the one day and two day versions is the amount of review we can do at the start of the class, and the number of scenarios we can practice with the skills taught in the class. The skills taught in both classes are identical, though.
