EQUIPMENT

Scarab Rescue Tool

The Scarab® represents five years of research and testing by Rick Lipke and the design team at Conterra. It was born out of the need for a small, simple device that could easily control heavy rescue loads, as well as excel at pick offs, twin rope systems and other general rescue techniques. The Scarab® does all this and more.

What a great course you and your crew put on for us – as a greenhorn, I expected to learn a lot, and I did. Your instructors did an excellent job catering to every skill level, were extremely knowledgeable, and I walked away with a lot more confidence!
