Rock Climbing Self Rescue Course
Eastern Sierra nevada -2 days

An in-depth rock climbing self rescue course taught by CAG owner/director and IFMGA/UIAGM internationally certified and AMGA certified rock guide Dave Miller. Dave will teach you the world-standard in how to perform self-rescue on rock and get an injured partner off a multi-pitch rock climb. This is valuable knowledge for rock climbers who are venturing on to multi-pitch climbs.

Instruction inlcudes:

  • Escaping the belay & transfering the load
  • Raises with mechanical advantage and lowers
  • Ascending the rope
  • Multi-pitch Rapel techniques with an inujured partner
  • Basic first aid concerns

We begin with a quick review of all the knots, anchor building and protection placement. We then move on to teaching all the components of self-rescue. If you master everything taught in this course, you should be able to handle just about any emergency situation.

We put it all together at the end of the course in a scenario on the rock that includes everything you've learned.

Prerequisites: Guests on this course should have the ability to top rope face and crack climbs up to 5.8 in difficulty and be familiar with anchor building and protection placement. Some leading experience is helpful but not required.
