Climbers work hard to avoid accidents but would you know what to do someone is injured or if a rope gets stuck and your partner dropped your only belay device?

In this workshop you'll practice the skills necessary to keep small incidents from becoming full blown rescues. You'll learn to escape the belay, pass a knot, raise, lower, and improvise commonly dropped items using equipment you already carry.
