Fast rope from a helicopter

Mostly for ex or serving military personnel.

Troops use fast-roping as a technique for rapidly deploying from a helicopterr in places where the helicopter itself cannot touch down. It is quicker than abseiling (rappelling), although more dangerous, because the rope is not attached with a descender. The person holds onto the rope with his/her gloved hands and feet and slides down it.
