Self Rescue

Climbing doesn't always go exactly to plan and having a range of skills to deal with any unplanned events is essential for any climber. Courses are bespoke and designed around the type of climbing you participate in. This can range from escaping off a mountain cliff, how to ascend a rope to escape the incoming tide, assisting a second who can't follow the climb, rescuing an injured climber, or quite possibly all of the above. 

Max group size: 2 (normally)

Course length: 1 Day (minimum)

Cost: £90 per person per day (based on a group of 2)
