This class is the first of twp self rescue classes we offer. Prerequisite for this class is Intermediate rock 

We will cover three basic self-rescue skills:

  • How to escape a loaded belay

  • How to ascend a rope with prusiks

  • How to rappel past an obstruction in the rope


Other skills: 

How to tailor cords for ideal waist and foot prusiks.

Basic anchors and how to set up a rappel station.

We can provide basic rock gear: helmet, harness, belay device but you are welcome to bring your own.

Students should purchase prusik cords. 

We recommend gloves.

Students should be prepared to do some homework in advance of the first lecture.



Note that classes sometimes show "Sessions"; Basic Rock Session A, for example. Sessions are simply alternate dates of the same class. In other words, you may choose Session A or Session B, depending on which dates work best for you. You do not have to complete both Session A and Session B.
