Rappelling & Fast-Roping

Rappelling: The deployment of highly trained personnel in volume to areas where landing of helicopter is not possible / desired. A rope and descender are used.

Fast Roping: A faster version of rappelling. A thicker rope (aprx 2inches) in diameter is used and no descender is required. Gloves are worn and personnel slide down the rope. Multiple personnel can descend the rope at the same time.

Wildcat is currently developing a comprehensive fast-rope program.
