Learn or improve your rock safety and self-rescue skills in a 3-day hands-on workshop around the city of Pucon, in the Chilean Patagonia, led by IFMGA-certified mountain guide Eduardo.
Climbing in general and rock climbing in particular involves risks. Despite being careful, climbers often find themselves in difficult situations without having any rescue plan. During this course you will learn the safety skills and techniques that can save you or someone else’s life.
The workshop comprises 3 practical day sessions on an agreed site around the city of Pucon (227m), in Chile’s southern Araucania region. It will provide you with the key safety and self-rescue techniques to successfully handle challenging situations during your future activities in the mountains.
The following are a few examples of the topics we will cover during the training:
Safety system: fall factor, impact force, and braking forces
Self-rescue gear/ Self-rescue knots
Review of basic techniques: safety meetings, belaying, how to lower people using a pulley system, and rappel
Ascending a rope using gear
Techniques to pass knots on rappels
Rescue rappelling: assisted and with pulley system
Self-rescue of a suspended victim during a rappel
Second climber self rescue
Leader self rescue
I will take groups of a maximum of 6 people on this workshop. They must be in good shape and have prior rock climbing experience, as well as knowledge on rope management and other safety methods.
If you are in Chile, don’t miss this great opportunity to acquire, refresh or boost your self-rescue skills and techniques. Book this workshop now!
If you are looking for other training opportunities around Pucon, I recommend the 3-day traditional climbing course and the 4-day guided mountaineering course in the Villarrica National Park.

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
