Oberndorf Lift
« on: May 04, 2021, 07:59:40 am »
Hi all,

I recently saw someone refer to the "Oberndorf Lift" as a rescue technique in vertical caving. This is a new one on me and Google only turns up results for ski lifts. Can anyone enlighten me?

Many thanks,

Matt

It'll be in Alpine Caving Techniques (or other manuals).

Essentially it's a second haul line (set up 2:1), rigged to the the main haul line. Requires a jammer/Prusik and a progress capture device and about 5-6 metres of rope. Pull then reset.

That link says it has peak capacity to lift 550 people per hour by 50m, as a rescue techniques go, it'd cover the biggest rescue situations imaginable!

A 2:1 pig rig then? Thanks.

Sounds about right.
