Do you travel to the mountains? Do you know what to do in an emergency? We can teach you the skills to use the equipment you have with you to get your party back to the ground.
Also known as Self Rescue, improvising, creative problem solving and conceptual thinking are stressed in this course. Learn to assist from above and below; lower your partner, ascend ropes, transition through multiple systems, and use mechanical advantage to haul your partner. Learn how to trick your equipment into working the way you need it to. This is a must have skill set if you venture off to backcountry areas. One or Two Day options available based on your needs and skill level.
We can also provide training in crevasses rescue and advanced multi pitch rock rescue systems similar to what AMGA Guides use in practice. Matt Shove is a rescue expert and is prepared to tailor skills to meet your needs. Ragged Mountain Guides teaches more practical self rescue programs than any other outfitter around!
