Weekend Training

Members of RAT-SAR practiced single rope technique this weekend at Weaver Point in Little River Canyon. Being able to efficiently and safely work on a single line is a huge benefit to lightweight rescue teams since it reduces the number of resources required, as well as lowering the stress on the patient rescue system.

The gear and techniques used during the Weaver Point practice session consisted of Imlay Canyonero 9.2mm static rope, BMS micro racks, Petzl GriGris, and a mix of frogging and rope walking techniques. Descents, changeovers and ascents with Osprey SAR packs were practiced on this 190’ vertical drop.
