Climber's Self Rescue - 1 day     
Donner Pass

What would you do if you were several pitches off the ground and your partner took a serious leader fall and got hurt? Would you be prepared to handle the situation? These one-day workshops are for experienced climbers wanting to learn improvised self-rescue techniques with just the gear you normally take along on a climb.

You'll study the best anchoring methods, along with raising and lowering systems for a one-on-one situation. This is a must for all climbers!

Skills covered will include:
  • Belaying the leader with self rescue advantages
  • Arresting the fall, tieing off the fallen climber
  • Escaping the belay
  • Ascending to the fallen climber
  • Counter balance ascending with an injured climber
  • Counter balance rappelling with an injured climber
  • Tandem rappeling with an injured climber
  • 3:1 and 5:1 raising systems
  • Lowering with a knot pass
