Rope Rescue in Gibraltar
Gibraltar’s Nature Reserve is a protected area with important historical sites such as St Michael’s Cave, Great Siege tunnels, Moorish Castle, Mediterranean Steps, World War II Tunnels, Old Jewish Cemetery, Windsor Bridge and the Sky Walk. These sites attract many tourists and therefore the GFRS need to be fully trained and prepared for any rope rescue accidents.
