Roping up

Roping up may be required during steep snow and ice rescues, or if you go alpine climbing or ski mountaineering.  This video from the The Mountaineering Council of Scotland demonstrates how to rope up.

This video demonstrates how to tie off coils with a Figure 8 knot.

Note: Roping up is only required for BSAR members with specialist skills for steep snow and ice rescues.
