CSP is invited to join staff chairlift self evacuation certification. Please sign up in the calendar.
If you wish to be able to do self evacuation from the chair we will be offering a certification with equinox adventures. This certification is NOT mandatory. Previous experience, confidence and proficiency with knots and ropes required. Self belay/rappel skills required. We will check you off on the ice tower and then the chairlift. Come prepared to demonstrate your proficiency immediately.
Here is the list of gear you will need if you wish to do self evac:
- 45 metres of 7 mm climbing rope
- 2 x pear shaped/HMS double self locking carabiners
- 40 cm sewn sling
- 1 metre 5 or 6 mm prusik cord
- stuff sack
- a belay device able to accept a twinned 7 mm. Please note that you need to check the age and specs of your device. For example, the verso was re-designed in 2019 to accommodate a smaller diametre rope so an old verso will not be acceptable. The verso is what we will be purchasing for all new kits for Sima staff.
