Let's see your twin rope system..

Recommended Posts

Two ropes attached to a single bridge! Very dangerous, you better get a second bridge 😂😂😂😂. All joking aside this is prob the best way to have it set up for double rope 👍, I used the same setup with hitch climbers when I had to use 2 ropes.

We've been finding that direct connection to the bridge/bridges results in twisted/crossed over ropes. Single pulley swivel seems to solve that particular problem.

 

The third hole is in preparation for the HSE  3 rope system regulations, due out when someone stubs their toe while being near a tree.....

I understand that a twin rope system works well in this configuration and aids spinning around without entanglement etc... but I can't see the additional safety benefit of having 2 climbing systems if they're attached to one bridge. If your bridge is compromised then even 12 climbing systems won't make anything any safer. Don't get it.

This one makes my head hurt......

Got to think that the system using drenaline would be borderline out of reach when at a stretch??

I believe this is Mutleys set up from Red Stag training.

Would that be classed as independently anchored though seeing as its technically one system? I don’t know as the ICOP isn’t clear on what exactly independently anchored means🤷‍♂️

I see what you're saying.

Its 2 ropes but 1 system, well,  its 1 attachment point at the bridge.

Ahh, the vagaries of a poorly thought out knee jerk regulation, devised by those that are not versed with the industry they are tasked to "guide"..😂.....

If one anchor failed though,specifically the one on the right, would the zig zag on the left be loaded correctly?
