Meet at 0800 each day in the Basement for briefing of the day's activities. Once you've completed the days activities, you can stay and practice,  or leave early. Bring a lunch. If someone wants to organize a potluck, feel free to.

Students should have taken a Self Rescue 1 review session prior to this course. This course builds on the skills of SR1. 

Self Rescue 2 focuses on rescuing a fallen leader. Students will be expected to escape a belay, ascend the rope to their leader, build or reinforce the anchor, descend, free the rope, then ascend back to the leader.

Saturday focuses on learning the process of a leader rescue and getting the rescue system to resemble a Self Rescue 1 scenario.

Sunday focuses on learning additional tools and rescuing the leader in different scenarios.
