About the Course
Let’s face it: building highlines is as much an art as it is a science. When you enroll in Highline Sections with Tom Wood & Vertical Rescue Solutions, you’ll get an inside look at how to navigate the maze of pre-planning a rescue at a very busy climbing area.
Routinely called out for high angle evacuations at this location, Tom’s technical rope rescue unit, the Alpine Rescue Team, along with the assistance of the local emergency response units, have designed a highline system using only removable bolts. Access in and or out of this area has been determined dangerous for rescue units, so pre-planned and methodical strategy was needed.
