Self-rescue techniques should be simple, easy to remember and effective for every adventure-seeking climber.

The most important thing to do when a mishap occurs is to call the emergency services so that highly trained professional rescuers can do the extraction manoeuvres in complete safety, but this does not mean that we cannot do something until the rescue services arrive on the scene, as time is an important factor in these situations. Facilitating their work can be a determining factor in the extraction time.

This course is focused on stabilising a climber who has suffered a mishap, for example, lowering him to a more comfortable belay or to the ground if the ropes allow us to do so. In this course we will see: climbing up or helping a person to climb to our safe point, accessing him to see how he is, lowering him to a comfortable belay, stabilising him to our body to lower him to a safe belay, joining ropes and passing knots if the rope through the belay and leaving the injured or indisposed person on the ground.

In this way, we will learn an extensive repertoire of resources that will give us more security in the event of an unforeseen event.
