Rope Skills & Self Rescue

Being out with your partner on the crag when something doesn’t quite go to plan can be a daunting thought.  Using techniques that many of us already know and adding in some creative uses of the equipment carried we can solve these issues should they arise.

Self reliance and simplicity are our focus points.
