Canyon Rescue Course

Darkhorse's 2-3 day(depending on class size and material covered) Canyon Rescue course is centered on self and buddy rescue techniques. Canyoneering takes place in some of the most remote places. If you are involved in canyoneering you have read the reports of "what went wrong" Have you asked yourself what you would have done? This course is a must for those who introduce others to the sport of canyoneering. The following will be covered during the course.

-Mechanical Advantage 

-Rescue systems (cut and Lower, balancier, guided raise and lowering systems)

-Assisted rappels


-Tandem lower and pick-off


There will be significant time spent properly setting up and using these rescue systems.
