CUCC Expedition Handbook


As no-one seems to want to volunteer to write this, I will adopt the usual policy of writing something for others to disagree with and change. The initial release of the guide is based on almost a quarter century of experience in rigging pitches on expedition, but much of that experience predates the widespread teaching of SRT to relative novices, and will inevitably be biased somewhat towards techniques prevalent a decade or more ago. The aims and principles are the same, but the advent of tools like a cordless drill have changed what is considered achievable.

As the Introduction will emphasise, it's not the same as Yorkshire ! While much of the material will be familiar to those with extensive SRT experience in the UK, every section will deal with factors unique to expedition work, and some will cover techniques very rarely seen at home...
