Outdoor rock rescue 

Learn these vital rescue techniques

 

The Outdoor rock rescue course will benefit from learning the tools and systems presented in this course, in partnership with our friends at Calgary Climbing Club. This Rock Rescue course will help increase your confidence and knowledge of ways to get out of situations many climbers find themselves in. Fallen leaders, stuck ropes, injuries and weak seconds can all cause problems when attempting a climbing objective. This course will help you overcome some of these challenges.

This specialty course includes 2 full days of outdoor climbing, with instruction on rescue techniques from below and above. Some of the skills learned include escaping the belay, raising an injured climber, passing a damaged section of rope, as well rope ascending and lowering options for individuals and teams.

 


*NOTE*
When booking this course via our website, your booking will be registered directly with The Calgary Climbing Center. The Booking Terms and Conditions that apply to your registration will be those provided by The Calgary Climbing Center alone, and those provided by Cloud Nine Guides will not apply.
