Learn important rescue skills and techniques during this intermediate-level climbing course!

When climbing, sometimes things don’t go according to plan.  That’s why it’s so important to have an awareness of what to do if something goes wrong in the middle of your ascent. I’ve designed this course on improvised rescue techniques to help give you the knowledge, skills, and abilities you need to safely navigate such events.

This course is designed for climbers who have the basics down but want to continue their climbing education.  Topics covered will include: escaping systems, hoists, rescues, and abseil retreats.  This course is limited to a maximum of 4 participants, so you will receive lots of personalized attention and individualized instruction.

Sign up now for this course and develop the useful skills and techniques that will help you climb safely and securely into the future!

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a fully qualified Mountaineering Instructor based in Fort William, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands.
I have been guiding in the UK for 10 years and chose the Scottish Highlands due to their remote feel and beauty. Rock climbing, Ice climbing, mixed climbing and more can be done in this area and it is all so accessible.

We offer a wide range of trips with Ben Nevis guiding, the Skye Cuillin ridge and Glencoe guiding amongst our more popular trips.
