Learn assisted-rescue skills no climber should be without: getting yourself out of tricky situations and assisting others when professional help is unavailable. You'll learn how to escape a belay setup, ascend to aid an injured climber and lower both climber and rescuer. REI will provide climbing shoes, harnesses, and helmets, as well as all climbing hardware, ropes, and anchor building materials. Please feel free to bring your personal harness as practicing with your own equipment can better prepare you for real situations. Prerequisite: Introduction to Outdoor Rock Climbing or equivalent experience.
