Hi all,

 

A quick request for your input, if you have the time. I was recently involved in running an advanced climbing workshop, for which I and some others made the handouts below. The handouts have been really popular, and we're now talking about trying to make them into 'living documents', kind of like a low-budget wikipedia for climbers. So we'd really appreciate (constructive) criticism and new ideas from all over the globe.

Single Rope Technique

Working the Angles

Introduction to Redirects

Knots for Arboriculture

 

Any criticism or feedback, please email me at joe@vtio.org.au

Brilliant little series there, fella. That's the most amount of info I have found on SRT, knots and angle vectors I've ever seen on one site. Hope there's more to come!

Just had a little look, I dont think Technora is good for Bridges, wasnt there something about on Treebuzz? Something to do with Technora beeing "self-abraisive"... Where are the experts?

 

And, your Double Bowline is none, I dont know how its called in english, sorry...

Very interesting working the angles, turns new rigging techniques on it's head, using a low fiction pulley with a parallel rope to snatch stems doubles the static load on the pulley and anchor point, by using the old methods without pulleys reduces the load through friction and therefore reduces risk of load point failure! Will we have to go back 20 years and get out the poly prop!!???:confused1:
