Real world rescue

Designed to teach you a "tool box" of simple rope rescue skills that can be put to use in solving common problems in single & multi-pitch situations. These essential technical rope skills could save you from having an epic or needing to be rescued. It's equal parts instruction and coached practice. We focus on the essential skills so you don't get bogged down learning complicated routines that can't be duplicated. Ample practice time in a real vertical environment is allocated to each skill set, which allows for repetition of practice and identification of application issues.

COVID and Rock Guiding

Just like other areas of our lives, we can mitigate the spread of the virus with the use of masks. 

Masks are required when we are in close proximity for example an instruction situation or at a multi pitch station. Because we are not in a confined space and we have the benefit of fresh air and the great outdoors we can remove our masks once the 2m proximity rule has been passed. This means climbing without a mask although having it in close for when doing partner checks, for example, or any other close proximity situations occurs. Please see our extensive COVID risk management plan on the About page, in the main menu.
