Rock Climbing Peak District

Mountain Training Association

Advanced Instruction - Rope and Rescue

This is probably the most useful course Rock Climbing Peak District offers. Every climber understands the dangers of their sport however most can't confidently say they know what to do if something goes wrong. This course is designed to teach you strategies to cope with all possible scenarios, which in turn will give you much more confidence when climbing and is run on a maximum of 4 people per instructor.

Topics covered include

  • Escaping the System
  • Prusiking
  • Hoisting
  • Accompanied Abseil

Importantly on the course we will look at prevention and how to avoid problems in the first place, however after the two days you will be able to solve most problems if they were to occur. The course works on a step by step basis, building on key rope techniques you will already have. On the second day we will try our hand at some 'real' scenarios and put your cool head and new knowledge to the test.
