Overview

Baker Mountain Guides Rock Rescue Course is designed to instill climbers with the skills they need to perform a self-rescue in multi-pitch rock terrain. Students will learn how to escape the belay, haul an injured climber, rappel with dead weight, lower, pass knots, and ascend ropes. We will also cover common climbing frustrations such as stuck ropes, what to do when your rope is too short, and how to prepare for the arrival of search and rescue.

Baker Mountain Guides custom course flow adapts to each climber. We build upon our students existing skills in order to provide everyone with the most pertinent information. Our local knowledge will foster your growth.

    On day 2 we will assign scenarios to each pair of students and have students execute a rescue. Afterwards, we will dive into common climbing frustrations - such as stuck ropes, taglines, and core shots - and how to manage them.
