This is not the Pamirs or Everest. Crimean mine rescuers train on Chatyr-Dag
Employees of the Simferopol ASO of the State Institution of the Republic of Crimea «CRIMEA-SPAS» continue to practice snow and ice training skills. The next training session took place in the Cold Couloir gorge of Mount Chatyr-Dag. Its main goal is to consolidate skills in working with snow and ice equipment in difficult weather conditions in difficult mountain areas and organize the interaction of rescuers.
During the training, 7 free shift employees of the Simferopol emergency rescue team practiced the technique of moving in ties on snowy and ice slopes, belaying and self-belaying techniques using an ice ax, and walking in crampons. The “snow anchor” technique was also developed.– reported the emergency department.
According to rescuers, the training location was not chosen by chance. The cold couloir is popular among winter sports enthusiasts and tourists. In itself, this is a rather dangerous and difficult place, where the snow always lies longer than in other mountain areas. In this regard, rescuers practice snow and ice preparation skills here, so that in the event of an emergency, they can quickly provide assistance to the victim.
