I am happy to announce that I will be offering Self Rescue for Multipitch Climbing again starting in March. I am offering this class through Rocks and Ropes/The BLOC in Tucson. For some time I have been wanting to team up with Rocks and Ropes as they have been a hub for the Tucson climbing community for decades.
I have been offering this class periodically since 2013 and have enjoyed teaching it. I’ve tweaked the course a bit over the years, but it covers much of the same material that I learned in my AMGA courses: load transfers, belay escapes, lowering and raising techniques, counterbalance rappels, and more. All of these skills are useful if you should ever find yourself in a bad situation on one of southern Arizona’s bigger climbs.
