IMCS-self-rescueIn climbing it is very easy to recognize a crisis situation; dealing with it decisively is another matter. This is an advanced level two day course intended as a follow-up to our three-day rock leader course. Self-rescue requires the very highest level of technical skills. Guide candidates spend many hours practicing these skills for the AMGA rock instructor exam. The skills required are escaping the belay, lowering and hauling the second, passing the knot while lowering or rappelling and ascending the rope. Climbers taking this course should have a good understanding of belaying, rappelling and placement of traditional gear anchors. In an emergency, do you really want to have as your only option waiting for the rescue squad? This course will give you the skills to be a more responsible and self sufficient leader.
