This workshop will focus on 'RESCUE'.

Additional information: The day will be a series of workshops that will be all around rescues. Vertex will plan and set up the workshops. Those in attendance can take part in the workshops and then have open conversations around the topics. The precise structure and content of the workshops are not yet finalised but here are some ideas that may form part of the day;

  • • Rescues from auto belays and other decent type devices
  • • Active rescues, different options
  • • Lifting methods and devices
  • • 2 lines. Descender and ASAP, or, 2 descenders
  • • Lift and lower 3-1 pulley rescue.
  • • What’s in your bag?
The aim will be to explore these options in a practical way and then create an understanding of the advantages and limitations of each of them, so we are all better position to help an operator choose the appropriate ones for their operations.

Some important details:
  • • Please bring your own COVID related equipment. Face coverings, gloves, hand sanitiser etc. We don’t know what the situation will be in July so let’s prepare for it to be the same as now.
  • • Respect each other’s social distance and also each other’s approach and opinion about COVID
  • • You will only have access to the toilet in the building. The rest is out of bounds. So bring your own tea, coffee or drinks and you own lunch. Yes you can use the toilet but please bring your own hand sanitiser and use the provided equipment for cleaning after you have been. There is always the great outdoors!!!!
  • • Be dressed to be outdoors all day. I may add a small pop-up shelter either by the ropes course or outside the equipment store if it is going to be really wet. Other than that we are outdoors.
  • • Bring your own PPE.
  • • Please bring examples of your rescue kit(s)
  • • Respect each other’s ideas, input and contributions to the day.
