Practice night vertical evacuation, Eldorado Canyon

Since many rescues happen at night, RMRG sometimes practices at night. On April 22, 2017, we had a practice in Eldorado Canyon. We performed vertical evacuation of two patients from the top of the Lower Ramp from about 6 to 10 pm. Rescuers accessed the top of the Ramp by fixed lines on the east side, performed the evacuations down the steeper west side, and then rappelled down the west side to get back to the ground. A chilly evening, but fortunately clear & dry.
