MOUNTAINEERING IN KOSOVO

PRISTINA - KFOR US Soldiers of Regional-Command East conducted a Basic Mountaineering Training Course within the Sharr Mountains, Kosovo. The activity took place over the course of a week to train and certify 10 Soldiers from various KFOR elements as assistant instructors for future courses. 

The training provided soldiers with the necessary skills to operate in austere environments and enhance the NATO-led mission’s readiness to operate in any part of Kosovo in support of providing a safe and secure environment. Skills include to conduct vertical and horizontal movement through high consequence terrain, basic knot tying, rappelling, ascending, line-hauling, popper placement of anchors, patient medical hoist evacuation and field craft.
