A few our trip leaders recently attended a two day self-rescue course up in the Blue Mountains and would love to share what we learn while at the same time rehearse and practice some of the techniques.

We will have a few trip leaders on hand where we will have up to 8+ Ropes. The cliffs are 30+ meters tall and some are exposed over hangs. The location will be both Rosa Gully and Diamond bay.
