As climbers we put ourselves in a variety of quite serious situations. This workshop has been carefully designed by our most experienced and qualified instructors, to help climbers learn to escape belay systems, to seek help, provide assistance or get to an injured climber. 

What you'll learn...
  • Escaping the system in reach
  • Escaping the system out of reach
  • Abseiling and ascending ropes 
  • Managing a casualty 
Who's this for?

This is an advance workshop for climbers that have a good level of experience multi-pitch leading outdoors and are looking to explore more remote areas where rescues from emergency services may be limited. If you can do the following competently this will make life easy to learn these new skills.

  • Use a guide plate
  • Build in reach and out of reach anchors
  • Use prussics 
  • Leading Multi Pitch routes 
Kit needed:

Your rack, 2 x prussiks, guide plate, plenty of slings & carabiners, shoes, chalk & helmet. If you are struggling for kit let us know as we have plenty at the school however learning with your own equipment is really useful and is advised. 


Our normal start time and meeting point is 9:30am at our centre The Peak Climbing School however as this is a private booking you are welcome to choose and pick your start time and venue. Here we will brief you on the days activity whilst having a free brew and biscuit. From here we will set off into the crag for an exciting days learning. We sometimes we use areas further away from our centre so you can get the most out of your course, therefore some transport is advantageous.  However if you are struggling for transport please let us know so we can arrange some for you. We aim to be finished around 4:30pm.
