The focus of this Self Rescue Climbing Course


Would you know what to do if the worst were to happen? How to escape from a sea cliff when the tide is rising? How to abseil with an unconscious casualty? The best time to gain these skills is before you need them.


Often what holds us back from adventures is fear of the unknown or fear that if you get stuck you won’t have the skills to get yourself out of trouble. Let us show you the tricks of the trade.

This course focuses on improvised rescue and self rescue techniques in both single and multi-pitch environments.


What is the next climbing course for me?


A great way to work on any aspects of climbing, from technical skills to keeping yourself and others safe, to improving your climbing technique, our highly qualified and experienced instructors can provide just what you need on a day or two days of Private guiding.
