Smalls Falls Autumn Rope Rescue Training

We had a great Smalls Falls rope rescue training in Madrid last week. Before lunch, participants and instructors worked in small groups on different skills such as: knots, anchors, patient packaging, 3:1 mechanical advantage systems, scarab lowering device, radium LRH, and more. In the afternoon, all groups came together and conducted: litter lower, litter raise, belay, repelling and rope ascending evolutions. DK, Paul, Gabe and Al did a great job instructing. Watch the FSAR blog for announcements of the next training at this wonderful site to be scheduled in the spring.
