You want to learn how to stay safe when you're rock climbing. This is the course that every rock climber should take. You'll spend two days learning valuable self rescue skills to get out of those tricky situations that should never arise but all too often do. If you have any doubt about how you'd react in an emergency, this weekend covering self rescue techniques, and how to cope if it all goes wrong, is an ideal way to put you and your climbing partner's minds at rest.
