All tied up in knots!
Yesterday evening we were training with North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team at East Woodburn crag. Whilst the wet weather had cleared, the wind made conditions challenging at times.
Our recent intake of trainees practised their clove hitches and alpine butterfly knots whilst others rigged the lowering system using in line anchors and a Petzl ID. Then we turned our attention to a stretcher raise using a rope grab and a 3:1 pulley system.
All good fun ready for when it’s really needed.
