At Rigging for Rescue, we are always on the lookout for interesting projects that challenge our skill levels, engage our minds, are out of the ordinary or are just plain fun.
These projects have ranged from rigging ropes courses for adventure races, to a highline across The Black Canyon of the Gunnison, to humanitarian projects like training the Nepalese Sherpas who respond to rescues on Mt. Everest.
This section of our website is dedicated to sharing some of the stories and images from these projects. Enjoy.
