BSO Climbing Escapology


Learn how to get yourself out of sticky climbing situations with this on-site rope management course. Climbing doesn't always go to plan: sunny Alpine multi-pitches turn into epic storm-chased retreats, you might get hit by a rock fall or you simply cannot pass the crux. This on-site course will teach you how to get back down safely.
