SRT rescue

While working on single ropes the beauty of independance can be our greatest threat, the ability to change over from SRT to abseil and vice versa while on mid rope is essential as with gaining the knowledge of how to improvise with your SRT rig to enable the replacement of a lost or damged item of equipment.

Being suspended in your harness for little more than 6 minutes can cause “Harness Induced Pathology” effectively leading to unconciousness and death. Being able to respond and adapt to situations quickly and effectively is paramount.
