Self rescue course

Self rescue course

What you’ll learn

In this two-day course you will learn the basic self-rescue techniques that can save you from many emergencies during climbing sport or multi-pitch routes.

Many climbers are unaware of these techniques, essential when tackling a multi-pitch route and that can save us in many situations and avoid a rescue organized by external services.

Some of the maneuvers we will see are how to fix a rope, taut rope ascent, passing knots up and down, rope tie knots, setting up 3:1 systems, counterweight to assist the partner and get a partner off a route.

Amazing experience, great level for a range of climbers. Our group's ability ranged from V2 to V5 bouldering and everyone had climbs they could do and enjoy. The climbing site was stunning and the rock face was in the shade during the morning so we... stayed nice and cool. All round great time and would fully recommendread more

Great time climbing with Gonzalo! Very encouraging, pushed me to do my best and respected my limits! I don't have a lot of experience climbing outside, but Gonzalo really made me confident. My partner who doesn't climb could tag along as well.... Perfect day in Jerica!read more

I had a wonderful day climbing in Jerica with Pablo and another climber. Everything was well organized and Pablo was sure to ask for our preferences on routes, top roping vs leading etc. It felt like a day out climbing with friends 🙂

We did a half-day trip with Valencia Climb (8:45am-3pm start/finish in Valencia + 1 hour drive each way) and Gonzalo as our guide - had a great time. We were three plus him, including one person who had never climbed before and one with fairly... limited experience. Gonzalo was very chill and helpful for the person with fear of heights. We did one fairly short via ferrata, and then a few short single pitch climbs nearby.Good time, highly recommended, easy organization. Both the guide and the person who organized the trip (Pablo) spoke good English, and the guide also speaks French, maybe other languages too - besides Spanish obviously. All in all a good time and well organized. The via ferrata (K3 - near Xativa) seemed to be a good place to start for someone with a fear of heights who has never done anything like this before, and it seems much easier to start that way than actual climbing for people to get a feel for how the harness works & etc, without requiring any actual technical competences, just a bit of basic fitness.read more

I had the most amazing time climbing in March! Valencia Climb were very accomodating and responded promptly to any questions I had. The views from the climb were incredible and I felt very safe with my guide. Gonzalo (my guide) was really... experienced and had lots of knowledge to share, also had a great sense of humour. I would definitely reccomend to anyone that was considering climbing with Valencia Climb :-)read more

Gonzalo was a wonderful guide and I had a really great time - was a fantastic adventure! My first experience doing a via ferrata, and he was helpful and the views were incredible. We had some time also to do some climbing and as an experienced... climber he offered helpful tips and led very well. I felt safe the entire time and really enjoyed our conversation!read more

My adventure with Pere and Valencia Climb today was beyond what I could have hoped for. It was incredibly fun, the views of Tallat Roig where we climbed were stunning, and I think very highly of my guide, Pere. He was clearly very experienced,... patient and knowledgeable, and was encouraging but didn’t push me. I did a full day (six hours) and for what you pay, it was such a fantastic deal. I climbed A LOT! I highly recommend Valencia Climb for any climber, whether you climb grade fours or nines. The team did a really good job of figuring out my experience level and shaping a day that suits me well. I know Pere does canyoning excursions too, and if I had more time in Valencia I would book a canyoning trip with him in an instant. There are no shortage of wonderful things to say about this company. I’m so glad I found out about them! If you’re like me and visiting Valencia, want to climb, and not sure where to go or how to get your hands on equipment, definitely give Valencia Climb a call.read more

Great day out climbing at Gandia with instructor Javi who was super friendly, relaxed and great at sharing pointers on technique and giving my partner confidence to lead belay safely outdoors for the first time. He took some great picture for us too... and recommended other crags for us to try on our other climbing day this trip.Prior to climbing communication with Valencia Climb was great. Initial enquiry super simple over Whatsapp, and it was a breeze to make the arrangements over email once we'd decided to book. Just what we were looking for. Thanks Valencia Climb! :Dread more

Professional and knowledgable guides for the local climbing areas.We had an amazing day sport climbing at Jerico—great problems with great views. We are frequent gym boulderers so our guide quickly taught us safe technique and brought us to... problems at a good difficulty level. Nacho, our guide, had a breadth of knowledge of the local area and helped us adjust our plans as we liked.We'll be looking forward to coming back!read more

We had a very cool experience!! The trainers were very calm, had a great sense of humor, they were good in explaining and adjusting the lessons to our needs. We just needed a fresh up and they did that perfectly! We went climbing by ourselves the... next day without any problems. So thank you guys for that! We still think that the price is pretty high as we had other great lessons including renting material which were much cheaper.read more

100% recommendable!! Amazing experience with Valencia Climb. I booked three different climbing activities with Pablo:- Top-rope climbing: My partner and I had different levels and experience on climbing and Pablo explained to us the basics of... climbing techniques and how to belay. We spent the whole morning with him in Jerica, a gorgeous crag next to the Palancia river.- Leading course: One on one activity combining rock climbing gym and outdoors environments. Again with Pablo, we went through the different lead climbing techniques, the different knots, the ropes, quick draws, belaying devices and stations, we practiced how to fall while lead climbing, different vocabulary...etc. Everything needed for me to be confident and autonomous on lead climbing once the course is over.- Group climbing: Outdoors climbing activity with other climbers of my same level reinforcing everything I learnt in the previous activities and sharing experiences and tips with other people.About Pablo, (the climbing guide) I have to say he is chilled, patient, professional, and he motivates you constantly to improve your skills. I felt safe at any time climbing and also regarding Covid-19 measures. Face masks worn all time, use of liquid chalk, respecting social distancing etc. Besides, he can teach you in either in Spanish, English or Catalan which is definitely a plus if you come from outside to enjoy the Spanish climbing spots.I will definitely book again when I come back to Spain!read more

I spent two amazing days climbing with Pablo at Valencia Climb and going to some beautiful places outside the city. Pablo is a ton of fun and very knowledgeable. There are routes for every ability level from very easy to extremely difficult. I... highly recommend getting out of the city for a day and climbing with these guys. It is a wonderful experience.read more
