Community Climbing Series - Rock - Self Rescue

  • University of Utah/Shoreline Parking Lot 300 Red Butte Canyon Rd Salt Lake City, UT 84108 United States (map)

CLINIC DESCRIPTION

Things don’t always go as planned while out climbing. Resources are limited and what may be a simple scenario could turn stressful very quickly. This clinic discusses self-rescue principles specific to bottom up and/or top down rock climbing situations (top rope, single pitch lead, multi-pitch). Knots/hitches, belay transfers, belay escapes, counter ascension/lowering, hauling systems and tandem rappels are among possible skill sets taught and practiced. Self-rescue involves the use of common tools and equipment that you might regularly have with you while out at the crag.
