Hey Fellow NC Climbers, are you interested in pursuing larger climbs in more remote settings? Do you know how to get you and your partner efficiently and safely off the mountain when a minor lead accident occurs? How often do you find yourself acting as the group leader? Answering yes to any of these may be why a self-rescue course with NC Outdoor Adventures is right for you.
We understand that self-rescue may seem complex, and many people believe "accidents" will never happen to them. Dave Webber, a wilderness EMT and Mountain Ranger on Denali states, “Remaining silent and hoping that events go in your favor is a horrible risk mitigation strategy”.
The NCOA self-rescue course in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC is taught the same way our private days are. We will start with a one-on-one conversation well before we reach the cliff and determine your climbing styles, future goals, areas to focus on, and learning styles. Then, we will custom plan a day of fun, and easy to understand, self-rescue drills. You never know, these skills maybe what gets you out of a “rock and a hard spot”!
Who is this for? We can customize this course for any skill level, however, we recommend groups be at or near the same skill level.
Trip Length: We can do a half day to a full week, we Recommend 2 days for multi-pitch and leader rescue topics.
