What is high angle rope rescue?


A rope rescue scenario is considered high angle when efforts are made to secure and rescue a patient on terrain where the slope is greater than 60 degrees or more.

This type of sloped terrain necessitates hoisting patients from one secure level to another through the use of pulleys, ropes, harnesses, belay devices, team coordination, patient litters and other types of hauling tools.

Below are some excellent kits used for high angle rope rescue situations.
