Climbing Self Rescue EOI

I will be organising some workshops in self rescue aimed at climbers. It will consist of weekly sessions at the climbing wall for around 4 weeks. Some possible topics are

1. knots, prussiks and ascending

2. locking off, ascending, moving between ascending and descending, abseiling past a knot

3. sport anchors

4. basic pulleys

5. escaping the system, lowering with device in auto-lock mode,

6. rescue spider, rescuing a climber that can't be lowered, improvising,

although it is unlikely that we'll fit all of this in.
