Denver Self Rescue Level One introduces students to the skills necessary to help you extricate yourself and members of your party from technically difficult climbing situations using only the people in your group and the gear you have with you.

Topics include load-releasable knots, rescue tethers, freeing stuck rappel ropes, belayed/counter-balance/tandem rappels, lowering systems, raising systems, rope ascending methods, passing knots, and transitions to dynamic escapes.

The ideal candidate will have completed Basic Mountaineering School, Traditional Lead Climbing School, or the equivalent.

Each session consists of two weeknights plus a weekend day. Students will attend one or the other, not both.
The weeknight sessions run 6:00PM - 9:00PM and the weekend session runs 8:00AM - 5:00PM.
Weeknight sessions take place on the Climbing Wall at the AMC.
The weekend session takes place either on the Climbing Wall or at an outdoor location to be determined.
