page15-helorappel

A basic Lead Climbers Course designed to provide the student with the skills necessary to rappel safely, become a Rappel Master and begin the certification process to become a Lead Climber.  This 5-Day school will place emphasis on knots, anchor systems and beginning climbing skills.  Students will also be introduced to equipment to aid in ascension and dissension, as well as alternate methods of rappelling.  Urban climbing, unlike rural climbing, will introduce students to accession techniques used to climb building exteriors and/or elevator shafts.  As a prerequisite for this course, students must be in excellent physical condition.  Students must supply some safety equipment (Climbing harness, rappel gloves, steel locking carabineer, rescue-8, and safety helmet, etc.). Ropes will be supplied by this organization.
