Looks like the hook is not ahead the peace in pics 6 & 8!


What equipment do you use beneath the hook. It looks like a number of componants and not seperate slings 4T/chains 3T hanging from the hook eye.


Do you use a tag line for the safety of the ground crew also to prevent the longer peaces turning into the stick.


Just observations from the pics without my glasses. Would be great to know your methods.:001_smile:


The hook swings around a bit when it is far from the sling, its very heavy and takes a while to stop moving,(it wasn't as bad as it looks in the pics)


The blue line on the hook is 19mm rigging line, that allows us to use a spider for balancing the trickier bits.

The spider is only rated to 300 kg so once on the big stuff we use the slings streight off the hook.


We use short slings and steel krabs for all the branchwork, that way the climber gets the next sling/s on while the ground crew sort out the last bit. This is quick, although pretty relentless on the ground.


Thanks for the comments.
