An Elevator Into Darkness| The Alimak Raise Climber

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph an Alimak Raise Climber (Click here to see a video) in action and up until then I have never seen  nor heard of one.   When I arrived at the base the Alimak platform was still out of site making it’s descent to the bottom and with only 15 minutes to setup I anxiously awaited it’s arrival still not knowing what to expect.  Think of it as a caged elevator slinking it’s way up into an abyss of darkness but this elevator also has the capabilities to Drill, Load, Blast, Vent and Scale all the while hanging in a vertical position.
