RAWQ Level 3 – Committing

Level 3 is a single day course that confronts participants with the intricacies of committing situations, such as rap-in climbs and multi-pitch endeavours. This level emphasises on retrievable abseil set-ups and efficient ascending systems, communication strategies and adaptive problem-solving, preparing climbers to navigate complex climbing environments with confidence, make informed decisions and foresee preventable mishaps.

Throughout the course you will practice these skills on the wall, in a multi pitch setting in order to familiarise yourself with operating in exposed and committing environments and feel comfortable problem-solving in unplanned situations.
