Additional Information

This is not a workshop for novice abseilers, rather an event to learn advanced roping skills to enable you to perform Vertical Rescues.  We will cover the knowledge elements on Saturday morniing and then work through the elements of VET Module SISORSC002.  This will include hauling systems, raise and lower rescues, self rescues, types and use of fixed and artificial achors, escape from a loaded  belay, prusick up, down, transfer to another rope etc.. I would expect applicants to have their own gear at this level.. I will have ropes, slings etc.  The activity will operate under COVID restrictions that are in place at the time of the event. Self catering for all meals and single tent usage for those who elect to camp overnight rather than leaving and returning Sunday.

The course has two structures

Both Saturday and Sunday for those who do not hold SISORSC002 (Perform Vertical Rescues) $25

Just the Sunday for those who need to do a refresher and already hold SISORSC002 (Perform Vertical Rescues) $15

A COVID Plan will be in place with QR log in and manual recording also with our COVID Warden.  Myself and those assisting are double vaccinated and this course IS ONLY OPEN to Leaders who are DOUBLE VACCINATED. This is because of the close proximity required when rescueing participants.

Useful youTube vid for practice: Belay Escape - YouTube  Not the only way, but very good.

Artificial achors: How to Place Trad Gear: Lead Climbing Skills | REI Co-op

This course is part of a requirement for your continued professional development as outlined in the Guide requirements
