Program Details Module 5

Hands-on Group Activity with Ropes (0.5 Leadership PDU)

This fun, collaborative activity relates to risk, communication, development of trust, teamwork agility and other project management areas. Volunteer groups from the audience will construct the different sections of a z-pulley system, which is used for crevasse rescue in mountaineering. The exercise requires the team to work together with ropes, knots and other climbing equipment, following images and instructions that Alan provides. Once the pulley system has been constructed, the purpose and overall effectiveness of all the various sections will be demonstrated.
