ROCK 4: Rock Rescue

ROCK 4: Multi-Pitch Rock Rescue Skills

Could you deal with the technical aspects of rescuing your climbing partner on a multi-pitch rock or alpine climb? Say they fell when leading a traverse and are now hanging on the end of the rope and not responding to your shouts? How about something a bit simpler, you just need to raise your buddy that slipped pulling a roof and can’t get back on the climb? Despite good intentions there are always things that can go wrong when on the wall or in the alpine and there’s nothing worse than that sense of helplessness you get when you don’t know what to do or how to help.
