does anyone have picture-illustrations or a verbal description of the Swiss-hoist crevasse rescue technique?
I don't know if this is the official name of this type of hoist, and cannot seem te find information about it.
It is a hauling system that can overcome knots you have put between you and your partner to arrest the fall, without it being necessary to drop a loop of rope into the crevasse to the victim (this technique requires a lot of rope).
With the C- or Z- pulleys you are limited by stopping-knots you have them put in, so I am looking for an alternative.
thanks if someone can explain how it works!
