This training focuses on the use of Griphoist machines and backcountry rigging procedures to safely move supplies, materials, and structures. Students will learn how to select the working components of a system for different load requirements, basic and intermediate system building, use of mechanical advantage, anchor building, and proper care of wire rope and non-motorized hoisting devices. Field exercises will include moving rocks and other building supplies in real-world applications.
