Crevasse Rescue Photos
The photo to the left shows a completed
anchor.  The red carabiner is the master
biner.  Note that there are two pieces of
gear.  The first piece placed for this
anchor was a snow fluke.  The back-up
piece was a picket buried in a T-slot.  
The blue carabiner is the back-up line.
The photo to the right shows a
completed Z-Pully anchor.   There
will be one more step for the
rescuer in this picture.  He will
have to release the figure-eight knot
from the blue locking carabiner
before the rescue can continue.  
The blue locking carabiner should
stay in place for later use.
The photo to the left shows a
completed Z-Pully system.  The
rescuer need only to pull on the
"haul line" in order to get his
partner out of the crevasse.
The photo to the right shows a
climber hauling a person out of a
crevasse with a completed 6 to 1
pully system.  We often refer to
this as a Z-C Pully system.
