Rope Rescue Operator and Support Check Off's

Each year team members are required to recertify their Rope Rescue Operator and Support skills. These involve ascending a rope past a knot and reblay, changing over (while hanging), and descending the same rope. We also perform a single rope "pick-off" of a stranded climber, and show proficiency in a number of knots. For Rope Rescue Operator, we need to construct various anchor systems, mechanical advantage systems, and a litter tie-in.
