Single Rope Technique
May 14-16, 2021
Location: Gallant, AL (Please bring camping gear since we will move from the Gallant location to a state park after the first day of instruction)
SRT - Level 1
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.
If you are a member of Randall’s Adventure & Training Search and Rescue, there is no charge for this class. Please email Patrick below to add your name to the class roster.
