Out today supporting Ben in his ongoing skills development in SRT (Single Rope Technique). Used by cavers to access the remoter parts of caves, SRT (if undertaken correctly) enables the safe use of one rope to abseil down on and eventually climb back up. The trick is to not allow the rope to touch any rock or for there to be slack in the system (admittedly a few other things as well…). Both can lead to serious issues regarding your health and well being.
So for Ben it was a rigging frenzy of bolts, rope, karabiners, slots, hangs and traverses. All with a few top tips thrown in at appropriate moments.
