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.
