Can I waive out of Rescue Level One?

You can waive out if you can demonstrate mastery of all the materials covered in the class. Know that Rescue One is meant to be preparation for several classes taught by the Technical Climbing School. It is more than simply learning how to escape a simple belay. If you waive out and are found to be unsafe in any of the successive classes you will be asked to quit that class and go back to Basic Climbing and/or Basic Rock and/or Rock Seconding. For that reason, we recommend taking Rescue Level One.

What do I need to know to waive out? If you are blank or rusty on any of the following, you should take Rescue One.
