For climbers venturing to remote climbing locations, and other situations requiring a high degree of self-sufficiency, this two-day course, using extensive hands-on simulations, is designed to build upon the foundation created in our Essentials Of Self-Rescue course.
We begin by covering the assessment and rescue planning processes relevant to conditions where you're completely on your own, without special rescue equipment or others to lend a hand.
Next, elaborating on techniques introduced in our Essentials Of Self-Rescue course, you’ll complete a simulation of a complicated, multi-pitch counterbalance lower/rappel with an injured leader. Improvised carries, makeshift litters and the involved techniques required for raising an injured climber are some of the other advanced topics that will be covered.
Our Essentials Of Self-Rescue course is a prerequisite for this course and we highly recommend that you have first aid training at the First Responder level or above. This is the most comprehensive training of its type available and the knowledge you’ll gain may well be the most important thing you take to a remote climb.
