Q GAIN ATTENTION. In mountain operations it is often necessary to move inexperienced troops and equipment over steep, rocky terrain. A fixed installation is one method to move personnel up or down these obstacles. However, this method is not always sufficient for moving their equipment. So, the construction of a vertical hauling line system may be necessary.
2 OVERVIEW. The purpose of this period of instruction is to provide the student with the necessary information to establish vertical hauling lines for use in evacuating patients and moving gear up and down steep cliffs. This will be accomplished by discussing the definitions, purposes, criteria of site, and usage of this system. This lesson relates to cliff assault.
INSTRUCTOR NOTE: Have students read learning objectives.
