Introduction to Rock climbing rescue techniques

Taught by Will Whitty. This course will cover useful techniques such as:
- review of useful gear (cordelette vs webbing), anchor theory (ERNEST), knots and hitches (prussik, klemheist,autoblock, backman, munter mule, mariner)
- escaping the belay and transfering loads
- rapelling (spider, assisted, counter-weight)
- ascending the rope
- discussion of situations and how to put it all together
- depending on time and interest, we can do more advanced things like pully systems, passing knots, basic aid etc.

Prerequisites

Participants should be comfortable rock climbing outdoors, belaying (ideally a leader), rapelling and familiar with basic anchor theory. Trad experience is not requiered, but familiarity with some of the gear is desirable.

Required Equipment: helmet, harness, belay device and locking biner. Other useful (but not requiered) gear includes biners (locking and non) slings, cordelettes and anything else you want to learn how to use.
