Self Rescue I

Self Rescue I - Rescue of Follower & Leader on Rock - Everett

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

The Everett Branch Self Rescue Course (SRC) is comprised of two components: SRC I & SRC II. This is SRC 1 only. This is a seminar-based course, with the goal of facilitating practice and learning of Self-Rescue skills by providing scenarios for the participants to work through. We do NOT mandate a prescriptive method for resolving the scenarios; we prefer that participants execute scenarios in a method that works for them, but we do feature a 'best practices' method in our curriculum for reference.  This is an advanced level course, and as such, there are few new 'skills' taught. The majority of the learning will be putting skills you already have into new sequences to get you and your climbing partner off the hill.
