Base Managed Self Rescue

Learn how to deal with the unexpected when climbing in base site managed terrain.

You hope it doesn’t happen to you but if it does…  It’s best to be prepared.  Take a base managed self-rescue course and be ready for incidents that happen at the base of a climb.  Who knows you just might save somebody’s life.

This course is essential for any serious climber. The key to safe climbing is risk management. Understanding the risks associated with the sport allow climbers to successfully prevent major accidents. However, accidents do happen and having the skills and knowledge in order to help an injured climber is the ultimate risk prevention technique.

In this course, you will learn how to perform self-rescue techniques at a base managed climbing site.  Some typical scenarios might include.

  • When a belayer gets hurt and you need to get them off belay quickly.
  • When a climber gets hurt and you need to go up to assist them.
  • When a climber gets hurt and you need to go up to assist them but the belayer is inexperienced in self-rescue.
  • When a beginner climber is too scared to get lowered from the top of the climb and will not let go of the rock.

Safe, highly trained, lead climbing experience

While this group costs more than the competitors group, I was able to observe Gee's technique against the other outfits guides and Gee was much safer and practiced under the Colorado Mountain School (US) standards.

CMRCA is the best!

I can say that going out to Crazy Horse Was by far one of the highlights of my trip.

Safe, professional and fun

Crazy Horse is a great location to do a climbing course and CMRCA have great guides.

Intro to Caving was great!
