Class Objectives-



 



Ever wondered how you might react if your climbing partner were injured? What about if you were injured- would you be able to get down safely as a team? In the PPG ARCPro Intro to Self-Rescue Class, you will learn tips and techniques to deal with unpleasant situations in the mountains. Whether you are an alpine climber seeking endless ridgelines, looking to break into multipitch ice this year, or a seasoned rock climber with regular days at our local crags- this course is for you!



The Self-Rescue Class offered by Pikes Peak Group is a key element of our Advanced Rock Climbing Program.  Students are given the skills, along with practice, to deal with many of the situations that can occur in a climbing scenario.  This class does not deal with any of the medical components and implications of an injury-based rescue; that is far beyond the scope of the program.  This class teaches participants the safety components and transitions that can assist a climbing team to extricate themselves from a number of situations. 



 



Prerequisites-



 



 Your climbing experience does not need to be extensive at all.  In fact, we recommend that even rookie climbers begin their career with this knowledge. Participants should have basic rock climbing knowledge and skills, such as those gained by taking our BMS- Colorado Rock Climbing class.  We encourage all levels of climbers to register- to learn new skills and to brush-up on rusty ones.



 



Special Gear Requirements-



 



Along with your basic rock climbing kit- helmet, harness, shoes, and belay device, participants will need to have at least 6 locking carabiners (at least 4 large, pear-shaped/HMS type), a 14-22 ft.  length of 7 mm nylon cord for a cordelette, two small (10-15 inches tied) loops of 6 mm nylon cord (or Hollow Block) for rescue loops/rappel backup, foot and waist prusik loops of 6 mm cord, belay device (autoblocking such as a BD Guide or auto locking such as a Petzl GriGri for multipitch), and two double-length (120cm) nylon sewn slings.  A complete gear list will be provided after registration.



 



Registration-



 



Registrants will be contacted via email with more specifics.  When you register, please make sure your email address is correct!  We look forward to climbing with you. 



 



*** There is a $10 Cancellation Fee.  No refunds will be provided for No Shows. Contact leader if you need to cancel. ***
