Re: Dismantling a Sycamore

Nice work. I curious as to why you use a strap and a clip to rig off pieces as oppose to just a running bowline, less things that could fail.

Probably because it's less fiddly and quicker, that's my reason for using them anyway.

Nice work, no dramas.

Its faster and more versatile giving you more options, you could be setting another strap/sling ready for the next piece while the groundie deals with the last piece, you can also rig off as many bits as practical in one go usualy no more than 3 all attached to one knot particularly usefull on pine species.

You are right that it is more things to fail. However I think that for smallish stuff and provided you don't overload the steel karabiners and slings, it is an acceptable risk. As Marc and Scottythepinetree have already mentioned it tends to be a bit quicker!

Re: Dismantling a Sycamore

Thankyou guys for all the comments. I was really pleased with how it went as it was my first ever rigging/lowering job. Apart from my CS 41 which I completed a couple of weeks ago. So I am pleased that no one found any glaring faults with any of it!
