Description

Join us on this Women's Introductory Abseiling Skills Course in the beautiful Blue Mountains!

"If you want to learn the basics of abseiling and self rescue then this course is a must!

This Introductory Abseiling Course will allow you to learn and develop the important skills and techniques required to participate in more challenging abseiling activities and adventures. If you're into exploring canyons or caves or just want to go abseiling for the sheer fun of it, this course will help you do it!

We start with a short review of your existing abseiling skills and knowledge and then proceed to the more advanced training.

The course will teach you the necessary skills to:

  • Select, fit and use abseiling equipment
  • Select and rig suitable anchor systems and single pitch abseils
  • Identify & avoid hazards
  • Manage risk & develop safe practices
  • Back up your own abseils with self belay systems
  • Belay other abseilers (Top & Bottom Belays)
  • Deal with emergencies such as a “stuck” abseiler
  • Perform basic partner and self rescues
  • While there is some theory involved in this one-day course, all the training will take place on the cliffs. If you’re serious about becoming independent on the cliffs, then this course is a must!
