During this 2 day course participants will learn the essentials of rescue in rock climbing. If you're starting to climb multi pitch sport routes, leading multi pitch trad, or climbing alpine rock then this course will give you the skills to prepare for the unexpected. From stuck belay devices to multipitch rappelling with an injured climber the 2 day rescue course has you covered. 

Our course starts on day 1 with the basics of single pitch rescue skills such as pick offs, rope ascending, belay escapes, and mechanical advantage. On day 2 we cover multi pitch rescue skills such as hauling, load transfers, and tandem and counter balance rappels. By the end of the course you will have the skills to execute your own self rescue on long rock routes with 4 or more pitches.
