All outdoor activities come with their fair share of danger; some more
than others. We can teach you how to deal with these unfortunate incidents,
so you can be ready should the worst happen.
Our two-day course takes place outdoors on suitable Lake District crags.
Day 1: On the first day, we will practice various rescue techniques,
construction of sound and simple anchors;
escaping from the anchor;
climbing up and down ropes;
abseiling with a casualty;
assisted and unassisted hoisting; and
freeing a suspended climber from a tight rope.
Day 2: On day two, we will head back out to the crags and create
some planned but potentially real-life scenarios in which we can practice
After completing this course we hope you will feel more confident leading
a big route or abseiling into the unknown over a sea cliff!
Our Improvised Rescue Techniques courses are held within the Lake District.
