The ASM Intermediate Abseiling Course will allow you to learn and develop the important skills and techniques required to participate in more challenging abseiling activities and adventures. If you’re into exploring canyons or caves or just want to go abseiling for the sheer fun of it, this course will help you do it! The ASM Intermediate Abseiling Course is without rival in technical content and instructional quality.
We start with a short review of your existing abseiling skills and knowledge and then proceed to the more advanced training.

The course will teach you the necessary skills to:

  • Select, fit and use abseiling equipment
  • Select and rig suitable anchor systems and single pitch abseils
  • Identify & avoid hazards
  • Manage risk & develop safe practices
  • Back up your own abseils with self belay systems
  • Belay other abseilers (Top & Bottom Belays)
  • Deal with emergencies such as a “stuck” abseiler
  • Perform basic partner and self rescues

While there is some theory involved in this one-day course, all the training will take place on the cliffs. If you’re serious about becoming independent on the cliffs, then the ASM Introductory Abseiling Course is a must!
