Hey all! We've been getting some requests for this, so the Stanford Alpine Club is hosting a Climbing Rescue Class! This Level 1 rescue skills course is for single-pitch top rope scenarios where the belayer is at the base of the climb. Skills will include friction hitches, how to tie off a belay device to go hands-free, weighted and unweighted belay takeovers, and a weighted belay takeover with a counter-ascend pick-off of a stuck climber. This class will give you the basic training to handle unexpected rescues on your climbing adventures and is a valuable part of any climber’s toolkit.

Pre-requisites: Top-rope belay...
