Self-Rescue and Problem-Solving Courses
We offer self-rescue courses for climbers, along with a range of other rock climbing courses, in the Lake District and Snowdonia, the Peak District, and Yorkshire. We do not schedule these in advance on specific dates, as we prefer to make each one bespoke for you and adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.
The term self-rescue in rock climbing covers a host of concepts and seldom will you actually be rescuing yourself! However, there are numerous problems that climbers can encounter, from the mildly irritating and inconvenient (your partner drops their belay plate) to the dramatic and dangerous (trapped on a sea-cliff with an incoming tide).
These courses, of varying duration, will teach you first and foremost how to anticipate and avoid problems, but if the worst does happen, we will give you a range of tools and techniques to help extricate yourselves from tricky situations. (Ratio 1:4 max depending on activities)
