Fall protection for climbing a stationary ladder
We were out pre-planning some possible rope rescue scenarios, we realized that their is a possibility that we might have to climb a stationary ladder to gain access to a patient or an elevated anchor to rig off of.
A few questions:
1. What set up do you guys use for fall protection while climbing stationary ladders
2. Is it possible to improvise a safe fall protection system without purchasing special equipment
3. Would something like the CMC Bypass Lanyard be adequate for this purpose or would it be better to have a system that has some kind of shock absorber built into it.
