What do we mean by self-rescue? What are these mysterious skills I need to know?
Usually it means securing the climber, removing yourself from belay duty, and retreating to the ground. Getting to the ground might involve a skill you already know- simply lowering the climber. The core skill is a ‘load transfer’ using some variation of a Prusik hitch and a slip knot to get a weighted rope from one anchor to another and back again.
