Single Rope Technique
May 14, 2021 @ 8:00 am - May 16, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
This 3-day Single Rope Technique (SRT) class is designed for the beginning vertical rope practitioner (no previous rope experience required). If you’re wanting to learn how to safely rappel for recreational purposes, or just starting your adventures in caving or lightweight rescue, this is the first class you should take. The following subjects are covered both in a classroom and field environment: Equipment, anchors, knots, belays, descending, ascending, change-overs, knot passing and self-rescue in a single rope vertical environment.
Gear Requirements: Long pants, hiking boots, leather rappelling gloves, snacks or lunch easily prepared in the field. While RAT supplies all the required gear for this class, if you have a personal harness / helmet and climbing gear, then you are welcome to bring it.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the participation in group activities in which social distancing is difficult, if not impossible, is likely to result in the increased chance of exposure to the virus, which may increase the likelihood of contracting the disease. This exposure is possible through direct contact with other people, proximity to other people, and contact with surfaces that other people have had contact with. By participating in the activities, you represent that you do not have reason to believe that you have contracted the disease, have not experienced symptoms of the disease, or have been diagnosed with the disease. By participating in this activity, you represent that you have been informed of these risks and voluntarily assume the risks of potential infection of the disease. You also understand that there is the possibility that you may transmit the disease to others, even if you do not show symptoms of the disease.
