SRT Training

Tired of horizontal caving? Ready to take your vertical skills to the next level.

SUSS regularly runs SRT (single rope technique) training days. These days can include: ​

  • abseiling tuition
  • learning to ascend ropes by prusiking or mechanical ascenders
  • switching from descending to ascending and vice versa
  • rigging

Training days are suitable for absolute beginners through to those with more experience, the day is catered to the ability of the participants.

You can register on the Trip List page of the website.

You will be able to borrow some equipment from the club but may need to bring some of your own, contact the trip organiser for more information.

The training days take place at various locations around Sydney and run for one day, typically they start around 9am and finish around 3pm. Specific times and locations will be posted for each trip.
