Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Afternoon all.

    I did my RLT six or so months ago, and am now getting itchy feet to go back and do the JSRCL.

    Does anybody know what is covered within the course content? I'm led to believe that they cover how to escape the system and assisted/unassisted hoists but is that all? Do they check out personal climbing standards etc?

    Cheers for any help.

    They will assess everything you did on the RLT - setting up top/bottoms ropes, abseil etc and teach and asses everything you said plus second climbs past a runner (a favourite). Make sure you leading, anchors and stance management are spot on.

    Pre-Course Standard (from JSP 419).
    a. Completed RLT within the last 3 years.
    b. Logged at least 20 multi pitch climbs of personal rock climbing, including some leads at VDiff grade or above.

    Get the Rock Climbing book by Lippy Peters - loads of useful info and have a look on the ATG Web - Welcome to Adventurous Training

    Good luck
