Description

Rock climbing is a fantastic activity. Fun and thrilling, scaling a rock wall not only gives you a great feeling, but allows you to get some great views, depending on where you are climbing. And on this full day trip, you will be climbing on some great rock walls in the Coast mountains of British Columbia, near Squamish. However, this trip is not just about climbing. Instead, the focus of this adventure will be rock climbing rescue. Our goal on this trip to teach you how to respond in the event of an accident, or any other unfortunate incident.

This course is designed for people who already have prior rock climbing experience, and wish to push themselves on more challenging options. Those options include multi-pitch climbingtrad climbing and alpine climbing. When climbing on more difficult rock walls, the risk of accident increases. Hence the need to know what to do in case such an accident occurs.

During this course, which will be intensive, we will cover a lot of different things. Some examples include how to escape a belay, rescue lowering, rappelling with a casualty, rope ascending, hauling, and much more.

I am confident that when this course is over, you will learn skills that could potentially save your life, or the life of a friend, during any future climbs.

So if you want to learn proper rock climbing rescue techniques, just send me a request. I would be happy to teach you some valuable skills in beautiful British Columbia.

About the guide

I am an ACMG Rock Guide, I started guiding because I am very passionate about teaching people the technical side of climbing as well as the emotional achievements that come with challenging yourself and connecting with nature.

I have been climbing since I was a kid with my teddy bear clipped to my harness, and since then I have dedicated years to travelling, rock climbing, mountaineering, and improving my technical skills.

I have climbed El Capitan in Yosemite Valley 4 times, sent 5.12 in 5 different countries, and love combining the techniques from rock types around the world. I am also an Industrial Rope Access Technician and enjoy geeking out on the physics of rope systems.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
