Utilising the main drill tower for scenario based challenges and a purpose built training rig for the technical skills tests, the event will run over two days with the heats on the first day and the morning of the second and the finals being on the afternoon of the second day.
It is anticipated that up to 16 teams will take part.
The rope rescue challenge brings together teams of rope rescue personnel who are committed to expanding their practical skills by learning from, and teaching, others involved in the same discipline.
The scenario based challenges will simulate the type of incidents that rope rescue teams may encounter and will be based on a team of five for the heats and six for the final.
Teams will not know what scenario they will have until they are briefed immediately prior to the challenge.
