Rigging line out of reach

Recommended Posts

The trouble with Stein gear is that it's all made by some bloke in the PRC. As mike hill once said "friends don't let friends, use Stein"

 

Fixed that for ya:laugh1:

Cheers for feedback guys.

 

I hear what your saying about the tried and tested. Im under no illusion that this will revolutionise anything. I am just trying to make life a little bit easier and the day that bit more efficient.

 

I realise stein have got their pointy stick, but even that has got limits as to how far it can reach, and for really long swings still requires a groundy to whip it. It also doesn't solve the problem of the working end being accidentally sent to the block.

 

I should be able to get some photos on here later this week.

I look forward to being ripped to shreds hahaha

Then it begs the question why do they still exist?!

 

Naive college leavers...?!

To stop the hook going to the crotch or pulley, throw a bit of wood at the Groundie!!

 

When they untie the lowered section, there needs to be a hard set rule of managing ropes, get it out the way, back to the climber, he can do his thing and get ready for the next lower while they sort out the ground!

Or put a marlin spike and a Krab in the lowering rope so it stops at the pulley , this can be guaged by eye by the climber easy enough.

Nothing wrong with stein gear, just a few people get a bee in their bonnet about things, and others jump on the bandwagon. I have plenty of stein stuff and can't honestly think of anything to complain about

I'll second that, never ceases to amaze how long it takes some groundies to wrestle and maul a bit of brash on the deck before they think about untying the rope and get it back to the climber.

 

Note to groundies. Once its safely on the ground, leave the chuffin brash alone, untie the rope first & pass it back to climber, THEN you can start mauling the brash and get it out of the landing zone. Return to tree, the next piece is ready to go. Repeat! Simples.

Stein bag, best bag ever!! I bought it over 4 years ago, has been lying damp most of its life in a van or chipper hopper, apart from being many,it's as good as new.

Floating pulleys work well

 

Would you be able to elaborate on that for me?

 

Does that mean I would have to roughly double the strength of the blocks anchor in order to still maintain a swl? As a floating anchor would require a basal tie off.

 

Also can this aid in the retrieval of the line when the other side of the crown?

 

Cheers

If the climber keeps a line with them up the tree with a pulley clipped on the end onto the lowering rope, it can just stay on all the time without interfering with the rigging and the climber can use it to retrieve the lowering line back to them.

 

If there's no great weight to the pieces being lowered, it can also act as a floating pulley to fine tune where you want things to land also. :thumbup1:
