Self-Rescue and Problem-Solving Courses
In general, we do not schedule these in advance, as we like to make each one bespoke. This is how we adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience. However, we do have a limited number of ‘open’ courses which are available to book on. These are shown in our events calendar.
The term self-rescue in rock climbing is very general and it’s probably unlikely that you will 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.
On this course there is a ratio of 1:4 maximum depending on exact activities.
