Rigging line out of reach

Recommended Posts

I use an extendable dog lead with a krab on the end for these situations, the rigging rope runs through the krab then the ground ties a stopper knot in the rigging line once he's untied it and I can just pull it back up to myself.

If the climber keeps a line with them up the tree with a pulley clipped on the end onto the lowering rope' date=' 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:[/quote']

 

I like the sound of it, I just don't quite get it! I've read it a few times, it's me I know, being thick! can anyone perhaps do a stick man drawing or something?

I think it works exactly as my dog lead idea if you can follow that one, but instead of a krab on the end you could use a pulley so that on lightweight stuff the climber can help control where the load is dropped.

 

Sorry probably confused even more now:001_rolleyes:

I love the dog lead idea. I was going to try something similar a year ago but I bought a super cheapo dog lead that didn't even last an hour. Idea binned and forgotten about. A bit of rope does the same job but doesn't disappear into a casing when not in use. I would add that a small swing-cheek pulley on the lowering rope rather than a krab is a great improvement.

For some reason i remembered that video when this thread was started, but wasn't sure if you'd want me posting it so didn't bother.
