RAWQ Level 2 – Raising

Level Two: Raising Elevate your skill set in Level Two as we shift the focus to raising rescues. Learn advanced techniques for efficiently and securely raising a fellow climber. From mechanical advantage systems to efficient teamwork, this level enhances climbers’ ability to respond to emergencies and execute rescues with precision, fostering a culture of safety and support within the climbing community.

Throughout the day you will practice raising rescues on hanging belays and learn how to protect your second on traverses using double ropes, in order to gain confidence and help you feel prepared for unplanned situations.
