MODULE 3: Crevasse Rescue of Unroped & Unharnessed Personnel

This is aimed at those who take visitors to the Antarctic who will be going ashore without using ropes and harnesses. Although we discourage unroped glacier travel, it is essential that all those who are responsible for such visitors - yacht crews, wildlife/tour guides - are able to deal with an incident if one occurs.
