Soil Anchor Report

Soil Anchor Report

A report by Chris Gallagher, Field Equipment Officer, Australian Antarctic Division, March 2011.

This report presents methods, discussion and recommendations in relation to appropriate rope rescue anchors and rigging systems needed for Macquarie Island. This testing has relevance to other rescue teams that need to carry ground anchors to the rescue site.

Over the Edge Rescue (in partnership with SARINZ) has worked closely with the Australian Antarctic Division over the last 10 years. We have developed high-quality training material and delivered yearly pre-deployment training to field training officers.
