Update and Beyond: Highlines, Guiding Lines, Deflection Lines, Oh My

A diverse group of rope access, fire service, swiftwater and mountain rescue personnel attended last week's Update and Beyond seminar in Ouray, including folks from Australia, Rescue Japan, North Carolina, and Colorado's Front Range. 

As usual, it was a skilled and motivated crew that found time for both training and fun in the Ouray sunshine.
