The Advanced Rope Rigging program is based around minimalist mountain rescue techniques and in keeping with this theme the program will cover the use of climbing hardware & active/passive protection devices like SLCDs, ‘Hexentrics’ and nuts as well as pitons for creating rescue anchors.  In addition, participants will investigate:-

  • a large range of knots, hitches and bends
  • webbing anchors
  • rigging geometry
  • pulley systems
  • mechanical advantage theory
  • directional and offset raising & lowering systems
  • casualty packaging in a rescue litter
