Installation support rope

To start the installation, the rescue drive first had to be put into operation and a helicopter was used to pull a first leader rope over the support to the Grawand mountain station and then a somewhat thicker rope (6 mm diameter) back to the valley station. After that, the rescue rope was stretched to the mountain station and finally to the valley station, which was then spliced. 
Then another leader rope had to be pulled to the top station and a thicker rope (37 mm diameter) to the bottom station. Thus, on 4 October, the installation of the suspension rope could begin. In the following days, the reserve rope was pulled into the mountain station and the suspension rope was tensioned and anchored at the valley station.
